Whenever I add music to one of the folders that I manually added for WMP to keep monitered, the files are showed as multiple tracks on WMP. I have to guess which of the duplicate tracks are not the real file and if I delete the wrong one, they ALL go to the recycle bin. Here's a screen cap so you can see what I'm talking about. In my screen cap, it shows two, but sometimes it goes up to three or four. Can anyone tell me why WMP is doing this?:

in the options for media player on the 'player' tab, there's an option to 'add music files to library when played', if you uncheck this, that should stop the problem happening. I would then rescan you music library, this should get rid of the duplicates.

hope this solves it.
