albums are multiplying themselves


Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue that I thought I previously solved, but this time, I'm at a loss.

 

I had to reload my iTunes library onto my QNAP NAS since I screwed the original one up (I hate iTunes). I deleted the screwed up iTunes library and then emptied my QNAP trash so there would be no ghost files for the server to see. I reloaded my library from an external drive into the multimedia folder. I am using minimserver and bubbleserver on my QNAP and did a rescan on minimserver. I use both Kazoo and Kinsky as controllers on my ipad. When I rescan my network, many of my albums now appear as mutiples. The number of iTunes albums went from 172 to 220. I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on. I checked my metadata and it doesn't appear to be cases of different data causing multiples. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Why are you using iTunes, notorious for screwing up librarires, in. Minimserver/NAS setup? Just create your own folder structure on the QNAP.
Good question, but unfortunately, its a library that I started years ago. I don't use it for new rips.

Don't know if this will help but on some albums with different composers, soloists or compilations, itunes creates a separate album for each. The way to fix is enter ' Get Info' and type the same name in artist/album box for all the duplicates and they will re-combine.

Thanks. I'm not quite sure yet what was going on, although I did check what you are suggesting. I just ended up deleting the duplicate albums and reloading them. All is fine now.
