Need an iTunes expert
« on: June 13, 2012, 11:12:24 AM »
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.

awesome thanks.

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.
