dvhttn Posted October 22, 2021 Share Posted October 22, 2021 So. I have all my music as mp3s stored on an SDCard. There is a 'root' folder here called 'mp3' and every album I have is in an individual folder under mp3. No nested folders. Recently I got an album as mp3s which was a duplicate of an existing one but recorded at a better quality so I copied all my tags and replaced the folder/existing album on my sdcard. I then did a full rescan. What I have now is a copy of both albums in the datebase BUT only one album on the card. I have checked and I have this album only once on my phone (I'm rooted so used a file manager to search the whole thing - only one instance). Within Poweramp I see 2 albums under artists, album artists and albums. 'Folders' just sees the one album/folder. Checking the tags and Poweramp reckons it can see both old and new versions. Both play. However ...... .... I'm thinking that Poweramp has somehow got confused by me doing a rescan with seemingly the same album in the same (name-wise anyway) folder with all tags to all songs the same. The only difference would be tags such as bit rate and things like song length (a second or so different for some) plus file size. Anyone seen this before? Not exactly losing sleep over it just thought it was curious and would like to know why (user error/bug?). I'm thinking I'll just delete the folder, full rescan (hopefully that'll remove both copies) then replace the folder and rescan again. Any comments/information needed before I do this?
