Duplicates Found!

So ive just gotten my hands on Swan Song by Robert McCammon in RTF format. Ive opened it with Calibre and it appears in the library. Yet when I click to open it it trys to add the book to the library... again; with the message, "Duplicates found! Book with the same title already exist in the database. Add them anyway?" Saying yes simply repeats the process and creates more files I cannot open... any ideas?

Sounds very strange.

Try to clean up your Calibre library before you try to add the new book.

Can you open and read other books in the library? Can you rename books, and still open them? Do you have the library on some external or networked volume? Perhaps you don't have read/write access?

Run library maintenence and check both the database and all the files in the library. Fix any problems.
Verify that you can open the book already in the library.
Verify that you can open the book you intend to add, perhaps with word pad.
Try again to add the book.

This is a pirated eBook. It is not sold or given away in RTF. Please do not help with this issue since it involves an eBook that has not been legally obtained.
