Title: Need an iTunes expert
Post by: denny on June 13, 2012, 06:12:24 PM
I've been using iTunes on my PC to rip CDs and xfer them to my iPad.  Works fine 99% of the time, but if I put in a CD where other artists are listed along with the title artist, it creates a separate "CD" for each combination.  I've tried moving the wonky ones into the main "CD"but it doesn't work.  Make any sense?  Anybody know how to get all tracks on a physical CD to end up on the same virtual CD in iTunes?  It looks like this when it rips those CDs....

you can highlight all three of those albums and make the album title and artist the same and they will group back together.  i see this from time to time and that's what i do to fix them.

i'm far from an expert though, so there may be a better way.  it's the "& margo timmins" that is making it do that.

If you bring up the Info on each individual song, there is a place, maybe the second tab, where you can "check" part of a compilation. Then the song will be listed by artist and down at the bottom of the list as an album.

Thank me in Bellevue.

or, in your example, you can right click, get info, and delete the "Margo Timmins"

I've got most of his albums going back to the 70s.  I've mixed a couple of his shows.  Great guy.

I only use the "Compilation" box when the album really is a compilation (like a movie soundtrack). The other way to do this is to go to the fourth tab on the Info box and just put Leo Kottke in the Album Artist field.

This is just one of the several reasons I do not like iTunes.

I use iTunes, but I do not like to use iTunes.

I mourn for MusicMatch Jukebox.

Me, too.  But I think I might have 7.2.  I prefer MM for tagging files from old LPs after I record them with Audacity.

It took me awhile to figure out that I had to remove Windows Explorer 7 to get it MM to work again, but I got it figured out.

The only problem is it no longer looks up albums and fills in the titles.  I think they shut down the library or whatever it checked.

Definitely Amazon for downloads.  Who needs Apple's DRM anyway?

iTunes is DRM free these days (for music at least), but just like Amazon, the files are forensically tagged with identifying information to track them back to the purchaser.
