Why does iTunes copy my music files twice when i "add to library"?
iTunes makes one (1) COPY, and leaves the file you opened / dragged into iTunes where it was, so you have duplicate files, one in the iTunes Music folder and one where it came from.
Or do you mean it actually makes TWO copies in your iTunes Music folder?
When i add to library from my music folder, then i click the album in iTunes and all the songs are in there twice.
Is there a playlist file (.m3u) in the original folder from where you add?
If so, deselect it while adding your music to iTunes.
Thanks for your help, that seemed to get it. What is that .M3u file anyway?
It's a playlist, double clicking only that file opens the entire album (or whatever is stored in that playlist) in the music player application of your choice (which has to understand it of course).
So in the end, you either use the actual .mp3 files or the .m3u files for selecting to import them.
