Hello, please someone help me I dont know what to do anymore. I downloaded 2 new albums of Black Sabbath but when i try to add them to MusicBee the program just duplicates all the songs with the names of the album songs. Ej. there are 15 songs in total within the 2 albums but when i import them to MusicBee there are 113 songs. I dont even know what to do.

Thanks.

My guess is you've got a cue sheet in each file.  I think you can remove it via the tag editor

I'm not an expert on cue sheets, but someone who knows more will hopefully comment.

Dealer's choice. Dropbox tends to work.

The issue is definitely a cue sheet.  I haven't figured out how to fix it yet.

Open tag editor for one of the file and you will see "Edit Cuesheet" button at the bottom.
Click on it, and select all content in it and remove it, click on Update, and then click on Save button of tag editor.
Do this for all duplicates of track #1 file of each CD. And then relaunch MB.

That won't make this hassle. You must have selected an option to embed cuesheet to each file.
