    iTunes music ...

    What causes iTunes to duplicate or triplicate all your songs?
    How do we rectify this phenomena?

    Not sure, whether there is an automated way to remove duplicates. But what I do, is in iTunes, select File->Display Duplicates and than select the duplicates and delete them.

    There may be a neater way, but if there is, it hasn't crossed my path, yet.

    Will usually happen if you re-add a song to your library a couple times, when I moved iTunes to my new computer, I had quadruple songs. :)

    I went into my iTunes on the PC, selected the File on the top left corner but the option of Display Duplicates is greyed out so I can't follow your method.

    Are you browsing the music, before you go to File->Display Duplicates? It probably won't work, if you haaven't selected the Music tab first.

    I know about this deleting duplicates feature but a lot of my duplicates are where there are various albums with the same song. Surely that would create loads of holes in your albums. I was going to do this last year but I couldn't bear the thought of holey albums.

    DUMI's right, make sure you are in music section, some things are so obvious but trial and error and making sure no-one else knows is good!
