I keep my .mp3 files in C:\Users\myname\Music\mp3 to manage my library.

Have a look at the image below,

enter image description here

But windows media player always lists duplicate mp3 files in album playlist. How to avoid that?


Even I encountered this problem sometime back and after googling I found the solution.Don't have the link with me but I remember the solution. Here's it

Click Start > type services

Find WMPNetworkSvc in the list then right-click and select Stop Service

Go to %localappdata%\Microsoft\Media Player

Find the CurrentDatabase_371.wmdb file and delete it.

Start Windows Media Player once again. Hopefully should be fixed.
