Windows/Windows Media Player is giving me a great deal of frustration when it comes to the organization of my music (the My Music folder).
I like to have everything titled and organized neatly. In many cases, I have more than one version of the same thing. For example, I might have the U.S. version, Australian version, EU version and Japan version of the same album. I want to rip all 3 and have them all stay in their folders where I put them. For all 3 of these CDs, when WMP auto fills the album and song titles, it sees it as the same album. No problem, I go up and change the album title to “Album Title (Australian)” and rip it. It puts it into a folder titled “Album Title (Australian)” and we’re good to go.
But, then, a few days later, a couple weeks later, a few months later… I noticed that it has put all of the songs (or songs from 2 of the albums) into the same folder. It adds “(2)” to the end of the songs with duplicate names and so on and so forth. It’s happening so much that it’s driving me crazy. I presume it’s a WMP thing… but it could be a Windows thing. I’m not really sure.
Has anyone seen this and know the fix/the setting to make it stop happening while still taking advantage of the auto fill, etc.? I’d appreciate any input or assistance. :)
