    Hi, I received my iMac yesterday (yay! :D ) and I absolutely love the frontrow interface. However I have only found one flaw and I should be able to fix by myself. My problems is with albums who have more than one disc. I have multiple double albums and triple albums. The way they show up in front row ( Music->Albums->"Double album") is not in the right order.

    The order I get is:

    Disc 1 - Track 1
    Disc 2 - Track 1
    Disc 3 - Track 1
    Disc 1 - Track 2
    Disc 2 - Track 2 and yada yada yada.

    When I want it to be:

    Disc 1 - Track 1
    Disc 1 - "..."
    Disc 2 - Track 1

    I have already set-up the track numbers and disc numbers in iTunes. I hope that you can help me and that I provided enough info in an understandable way. :p

    I had this problem too.

    Say the album with multiple discs is Yes's Tales Of Topographic Oceans.

    name them as follows:

    ALBUM track
    Tales of Topographic Oceans (disc 1) track 1
    Tales of Topographic Oceans (disc 1) track 2
    Tales of Topographic Oceans (disc 2) track 1
    Tales of Topographic Oceans (disc 2) track 1

    Basically, all the tracks on disc one should be under the album name <ALBUM> (disc 1) and all the tracks on disc 2 under the name <ALBUM> (disc 2).

    OR, iTunes has a disc number field in GET INFO. You can edit more than one song at once with this.

    In the info for the songs (in itunes) you can label it Disk 1 of 2, or Disk 2 or 2. iTunes will group similar #'d disks together.
