    So I'm getting my library organized and when I flip through the albums view, I get the same cds being represented multiple times.

    For example, if I go to Incubus's Light Grenades, it shows up like 5 times...but I only want it to show once.

    I've been through the tutorials and the help function and just cant figure it out. Mainly, I want this done for aesthetics. Can any of you help me out? NWS reward. :naughty:

    make sure that if you are organizing it by album or artist or whatever, that that all of the songs have the exact same tags

    yeah they are the same exactly, the problem is i didn't get them all from iTunes so they aren't grouping together right.

    do a group tag edit on them...

    select all of the songs on the album, and 'get info' them, then put all of the info in again?

    You gotta make sure every tag is the same. If you got them from different sources they might have a comment different or something.

    Select them all and make sure the basic info for the Album is all fill in the same for them (Get Info). Check the boxes for "comments" and make sure it's blank.

    I'd like to know if there's a way to turn off the auto-fill option in iTunes. I hate trying to tag something and it trys to be helpful and it fills in what it thinks I want. So when I try to delete what it adds it just adds it in again.

    Pain in the fucking ass.

    The problem I have is with compilation CDs or soundtracks from movies. iTunes splits the albums apart into individual songs for each different artist. I've tried to get them to join back up into one album with no luck :squint:

    you know there is a compilation option?

    when i find an album that has been split, i just set it as compilation and then change it back to non compilation and they stay together
    yeah, thats annoying, i found i just have to type the first letter twice to get it to go away
