Grrrrrrr... so I've collaborated my library a few times over, including ripping my ipod (which had a lot of my old music that was lost in a pc crash) etc. etc. And now I have over 2000 duplicates! Yes yes, you can "show duplicate songs" but the folks at apple decided not to have a "delete duplicate songs" button. Thus when I show duplicate songs, I show 4000+ items. In order to delete the duplicates I'd have to essentially click every other song about 2000+ times then delete. Such a pain! And of course I can't just delete the entire list displayed with "show duplicates" or any of the scripts that are out, because for some reason it was decided to show the originals along with the duplicates. So if I delete all that show on the list, I lose all the originals as well. My plan is to get rid of the duplicates, reformat my ipod to this un-duped library, delete my entire library that is on my ibook, then re-rip it all thus giving me an un-duped library. In order to do this, I need to think of some genious method of getting rid of all these duplicates. Anyone have any ideas? I'm hard-pressed... P.S. I tried dragging the duplicates into a folder on my desktop but the files are all differently named.
