Album artwork for multiple Artists on an album

    As a new user, I have a quick iTunes question. I'm in the middle of setting up my music (all MP3 files) in iTunes in anticipation of getting an iPod Touch (my first iPod). I have a problem with the Album art though.

    For the album art to be associated with a song, it seems that both the Artist name and album title seem to have to match. This is fine with most albums but several have multiple Artists on the same album and so won't show the correct album art.

    I assume there's an easier way to fix this than manually adding the Art to each exception but I've no idea what it is. So, how do I force these to use an existing Album's art?

    I figured this out after much searching so if anyone else is having the same problem...

    When an album has multiple Artists (i.e. more than one), in iTunes you need to:

    1 - Select all the tracks in the album
    2 - Right click and select 'Get info'
    3 - Enable 'Compilation'

    You may have to add the album art again after doing this.
