    Hi there,

    I have a MacBook Pro with Leopard and the latest iTunes.

    For some weird reason iTunes starts to add every file twice. And I don't mean that it just keep the original, it actually adds the file two times in the iTunes Music folder.

    I just added 300 Beatles Songs but now it added every single song twice...I have 600 songs now. This happened now and then before and its REALLY annoying. Especially when I need to delete every single file manually. The show duplicates just shows both files but I still need to highlight every 2nd file and then delete it.

    My iTunes preferences:
    Keep iTunes Media Folder organized - check
    Copy files to iTunes Media Folder when adding to library - check

    I have found this happens if an .m3u (playlist) file is included in the folder that the song files are in, remove it and you will only get one copy of each song
