Find files with different extensions


Hei guys.
I would like to search for files with the same name and different extensions and output only the files with a certain extension. Example: music.mp3 and music.wav will output only music.mp3, but m.mp3 and n.wav won't output nothing (no match).

This does that trick:
Code:
# for i in $(ls *|cut -d'.' -f1|sort|uniq -d); do find . -name $i.mp3; done
./music.mp3
It will only list files with are named with 'multiple' extensions (more than 2).
Then, from those it will only list the ones with extension: .mp3
