    I am ripping a lot of CDs right now and earlier tonight I suddenly realized that there was an extra copy of every song in the playlist. Ten minutes earlier I had no duplicates at all.

    Does anyone know how that happened? I don't think I hit any key that I wasn't supposed to hit :confused:

    I ended up deleting all of the songs from the playlist and made a copy of my library and made it into a new playlist. That seemed to solve the problem (since I have few playlists).

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Well, all I can think is that you may have imported by dragging and dropping the music into the playlist and then dragged it in again from the Library once it was imported. I do it all the time by mistake.

    In future, you may want to use the Show Duplicate Songs option from the Edit menu. :)
