    What is a good program for finding duplicate music files in a music collection?

    Foobar works for me - just put them in the playlist and then hit "remove duplicates"...

    that is, of course, assuming that is what you want to do!

    Spend some time organising your collection. May be down and dirty, but you'll be so much happier when you know where everything is.

    I'm going to organize it... but I figured if I could get a program that found duplicates it would find some that I might miss... I've close to 3000 songs or so that I need to scan.

    I tried that... it's works, but it doesn't get nearly all the duplicates. Gonna try foobar next.

    are you talking "exact" duplicates, or just songs you may have at differing bitrates, etc

    If exact dups, I just sort by size and take a look

    Nope, not exact duplicats. Songs at different bit rates, slightly different naming, songs in album's from various artists as well as in album's from a single artist (means duplicate of same song in multiple directories so I wouldn't notice the double). That's why I would like a program.

    Kyle, you have some really nice apps there. All your own work?

    I tried this, but all I got was an error. I included a screenshot of it. I tried it a couple times but got the same error each time.

    searching threw old apps again kyle ?? This one was a year an a half old .. You need some help, I never seen anyone try to push their prog as much as you do .. I hope they bann you for being the biggest spammer in OSNN history ...

    I see you have 121 posts, I am willing to bet that 100 of them are trying to sell your product, mostly from digging up old posts like this. Also, I checked your profile, it appears that the only time you do post is when you dig up old posts and try to sneak your program in to it, or start a thread about your program. If I was admin here, you would have been banned long ago ..
