Hi forum,

I ripped all my CDs into flac files for playback on my stereo on transcoded the flac files to mp3 for playback on the radio on my car. The folder structure is like this: Artist/Album/["flac files", Mp3/"mp3 files"]. Consequently each title shows up twice in the media library once as flac file and once as mp 3 file.

Is there a way to setup a filter that prefers flac files over mp3 files if there are two files with the same name?

If there is no way, any suggestions how to cope with the problem?

Sounds like a lot of work, but if it works for you....... I literally want to find the duplicate mp3s and delete them.....not bothered about tagging them. I just want FLAC masters and mp3s of tunes that I haven't got FLAC copies for.
Anyone thought of a simple solution for this yet?
Midiman what happened to the .exe you were going to send me?

Oops - will get a move on re this. I am in the middle of writing some documentation - I will let you know when that is done and all is available for download.
