    Default iTunes duplicates from external USB drives

    Hi,

    I know iTunes is supposed to eliminate duplicates (meaning references to the exact same file), but I encountered a problem here.

    I have an external USB drive (WD MyBook). I drag my files to iTunes and they show up properly. Dragging them again, I see iTunes recognizes that they're already in the library and doesn't add them.

    However, if I eject the drive and then hook it up again, and drag the files they show up again. Looking in the iTunes Music Library.xml file I see the files have the exact same path, and iTunes is still confused.

    Code:
    		<key>14905</key>
    		<dict>
    			<key>Track ID</key><integer>14905</integer>
    			<key>Name</key><string>California Love</string>
