[SOLVED] Playlist - same song, two files

Post by mightymo17 »

I'm new to MediaMonkey and I'm still trying to tweak it to work for me.

Is there a way for the Playlist to detect by "artist" - "title"? I have the "Warn when duplicate files are added" option checked. But it's allowing the same song from two different albums to be added without any warning given. Is it possible to check for this in either the free or gold version?

Sorry, I had a screenshot example but it wouldn't let me attach it.

Van Halen - Jump 1984
Van Halen - Jump The Best Of Both Worlds [Disc 1]

Running Standard Edition (Ver. 4.1.28.1905)

Thanks.

No, it can only warn if the same file is added twice.

My test result: Criterion = Field "Path"
I have the "Warn when duplicate files are added" option checked.
Even absolutely the same file name in different paths does not lead to a warning about "double entry".

Example:
"Path" = D: \ _ MUSIK \ 500 miles - voXXclub.mp3
"Path" = E: \ _ MUSIK \ 500 miles - voXXclub.mp3
"Path" = E: \ _ MUSIC \ Album \ 500 miles - voXXclub.mp3

It's not the same Path, only the same file will warn, not when you have copies in a different Path.

Yes, I have described above.
Even absolutely the same file name in different paths does not lead to a warning about "double entry".

Thanks all for the replies. That's a bummer. I just recently dumped iTunes after the last of our iPADs died. I've been test driving different players. Was getting this warning in MB, but not MM. Was making sure I wasn't missing a setup option. Both have their good and bad, but I'm liking MM. Thanks again.

Hi,
MM manages duplicates under files to edit tree node of each collection type so you can delete those you do not want to keep (as it lists all copies you need to keep one copy and delete rest)

Hi Peke,
I hadn't drilled down in the folder tree and found that option. Very nice. Thank you very much for the info. sir.
