Notsure Music on the SD card?

Got my Incredible a couple of weeks ago, and I'm very happy with my purchase. I'm an experienced smart phone user (4 generations of Treo's, Blackberry, Moto Droid), but I've encountered an issue that has me perplexed. I loaded about 20 mp3's in a folder I created on my SD card. I immediately checked the default music player and was happy to find that it found and played all 20 songs. I went back to use the music player a day or so later and found it listed all of the newly loaded songs twice! In looking at the details of the songs, I found that somehow a process on my Incredible copied all 20 songs to the internal memory! I was hoping to eventually load about 10GB of music to my SD card with the assumption that I could play those songs directly from the card. But until I figure this out, that obviously is not going to happen.

I'm hoping the collective brilliance of this group will explain this unusual behavior and solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure you just didn't accidentally copy it twice, once on the internal and once on the card? It shouldn't duplicate your songs. I have a pretty large selection of songs on my card and never have they jumped onto my internal without my own doing. I'd say, delete the songs on your internal, and just continue using the card and see if it happens again.

Thanks for the reply. I'm certain I only copied it only once. And since I don't know how to copy a file to internal memory of my DInc direct from the PC, I'm pretty certain I copied it to the SD card. That said, I tried recreating the problem with a single file, but could not. So I will follow the advice, and gradually over a week or two, load 10GB of my music to my 16GB SD card, and report back here if it happens again.

I haven't had that happen to me. All songs loaded with their own album art.
