MMW creating duplicate library entry

Post by ltripreno » Sat Aug 31, 2019 3:38 pm

I am not sure where to fix this. I suspect it is a setting I need to change.

On 8/26/19, I rip a CD and it goes to location: M:\LT albums and music\artist\album
Then today, there is a new library entry that lists location: \\Trip-Cloud\Larie\LT albums and music\artist\album

(I could not find an easy way to embed a screenshot)

The 2 "locations" are the exact same destination, just different ways of getting there.
When I look at the location, there is only 1 file for the song.
I assume MMW is creating the second entry due to some automatic process. But I can't seem to find where it is.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like you're using a Mapped Drive for a Network location. MediaMonkey on it's own wouldn't select both locations for inclusion. So either in the Rip Dialog you changed the destination to Rip to or you've used Add/Rescan Files and used the alternative location.

You can remove the files from the network Path and switch to the Mapped Drive in both the scanning and ripping of files (however UNC network Paths are recommended instead).
