I can't tell you why they've been 'duplicated' - sorry. But I can tell you
how to delete bunches of them at one time.
The method I'd recommend is pretty technical, so if you don't feel
comfortable with 'computer code', then maybe someone else can come up with
another idea. I am going to assume that you know how to use some of the
utility programs on your Windows computer (please don't respond and say
you're using a MAC....).
There is a file called 'Manifest.xml' residing in your digital editions
folder. That file is the index for ADE, and contains information about all
of the ebooks in your library. XML files are text files, so they can be
edited by a number of programs. I use Notepad.
First, make a copy of the file and name it something different, like
'oldmanifest'. Then using Windows Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer), display
the directory for Adobe and locate the 'manifest,xml' file. Right click on
it and choose 'Open With' from the drop-down menu. Then choose 'Notepad'
and click on it.
When the file opens, you'll see the first few entries deal with the way ADE
is going to operate. Then, you'll see repeating entries for ebooks in your
library. You can highlight groups of entries and delete them.
When you are done, save the file. Then, when you open ADE, you should see
only as many entries as you left in the file.
Hopefully, someone else can tell us what's going on....
Thanks, that was mostly helpful my slight problem is what to delete as this is what turns up on Notepad when I followed your suggestion and I don't know what to delete
<dc:publisher>Penguin Group UK</dc:publisher>
<dc:title>High Stakes Bride</dc:title>
so any ideas as the book High Rhulan is repeated at least 3 if not 4 times, unfortuantly ADE is claiming that there are over 8000 books and so it is now very slow and i can wait a good 10-15 min while it loads so i couldn't check
All of those 'content record's are descriptions of the ebooks that ADE
thinks are in the library. You have furnished one of them that starts - and
ends - with "de:content record". So, you could highlight all of them but
one and press the DELETE key.
