I've got a ton of MP3's, I've finally got (most) of them tagged correctly, but now I need to weed out the dupes. Some albums I have fully duplicated, some albums only one or two songs, but I've got lots of duplicates and I need a good way to get rid of them. I'm on Windows, and would really not like to install iTunes if I don't have to. Help!

How about something like DoubleKiller? It's worked well for me in the past ...

Best answer: media monkey is the best music organizer and it also weeds out dupes when you tell it to.

Duplicate Cleaner is very good.

Can I jump in here and ask if someone has a Mac app for this?

For iTunes, click 'File', 'Display Duplicates'. It won't help you manage them, but it will identify them if they are correctly tagged.

MusicBrainz Picard is an excellent cross-platform app for correctly tagging music and weeding out duplicates.

I use Media Monkey for this. Just have it organize the files for you and it will get rid of dupes as it renames the files.
