Music player displaying each album/song twice.
Each album/song is displayed twice, and both are clickable. So it will have two icons for "Justin Bieber: My World 2.0" (lol psych). The tracks in the first album are unplayable (format not supported), but the second album is playable.
Any fixes? Thanks in advance.

If you know which format is OK, you can hook up your X to your PC via USB (warning: do NOT install the Moto desktop program - just hit cancel) and access the music folder, which is probably under Media, but may be separate.
There, you can manually delete the files you don't want. In the future, if you add music files, it's easiest to just drag/drop from your PC to the music folder on the X's SD card. Using intermediary programs often create problems such as the one you mention.

Did you move the folder where the music was originally to another folder? I've had that happen before when I did that. I just went in and found out which set was bad, and deleted it from within the music player itself. And the problem was solved. I use PowerAmp though, which does have a delete function... not sure if the stock player does (never use that). Good luck!
I'm using a Mac. I pulled all my music off of itunes with NoteBurner. The files are not duplicated when I mount my Droid on the desktop, and they're not duplicated in the source folder on my computer. I think its probably an artifact of the NoteBurner process.
I am going to wipe the music off my phone and put it back on from my computer.

your fix: go to settings > applications > manage applications > click on ALL tab... go to Media Storage (yes, its a system app i know)... click on it... clear cache... now open you music app (whatever it may be)... rescan folders... walla... no more duplicates...
Update - *fixed*
For anyone who encounters this in the future:
I actually wiped my SD card and factory reset my phone. Worked like a charm
Seriously though, it works. Just format your SD (make sure you back up!), then factory reset your phone.
