I’ve put my itunes library on my MyCloud. When I open itunes I can access the library no problems. However when I view the list of songs every song is listed 4 times and every playlist is listed twice. When I probe through the directories on the MyCloud each song is only on there once. I can’t delete the extra listings in itunes. Any ideas on what I’ve got wrong? Thanks.
This might happen as you move things around. If you right click on a duplicate song, and choose “show in explorer/finder”, you might find out that many copies are in fact orphans.

Etupes, Thanks for the help.
The “show in explorer/finder” option is not available (at least for me) when viewing the files (music & playlists) on the MyCloud through iTunes. But you were right about the orphans. What I think was happening was the WD itunes server scan was finding multiple back-ups on my MyCloud. I deleted the extra back-ups and now I am down to just 2 listings of each and I know where they are coming from (“live” version on MyCloud and back-up on USB drive attached to MyCloud backing up the MyCloud).
Go to the admin dashboard of the NAS and turn off media scanning for the share corresponding to your USB
