    iTunes imported a CD for me but had problems with the last song.

    I was able to import the last song into iTunes on another computer. For some reason, none of the album info was entered for that last song (ie: unknown cd, unknown title, etc..) I edited the Info for the song (using right-click, properties on the song in iTunes) so that the Name, Artist, etc displays correctly in iTunes.

    I copied this last song to the directory that all the other songs were originally imported to on the original computer.

    When I list music by album, iTunes shows the first 9 songs in one album and the last song in a 2nd album. Both albums are named the same and (as far as I can tell) all the info in the 10th song's properties are valid.

    How can I make iTunes group the 10th song in the same album as the other 9 songs?

    I believe that if you have the keep my music library organized feature active, it will organize it properly.

    ctrl click (or right click) on the song, select "Get Info", click on the "Info" tab and select "Part of a Compilation" at the bottom of the box (you might need to do this for every song in the album. All the songs should be grouped as one complete album after you do this.

    Make sure that on the last song, the album name is exactly the same as what it is on the other songs. Or check the album artist. Sometimes a tiny thing like a extra space at the end (unnoticed unless you highlight the whole thing) will screw up your whole organization.
