    I am having a problem with my ipod classic of the following nature:

    Many artists have released "Greatest Hits" collections and their album titles are simply stated as such.
    When I select an artist on my ipod and then choose a specific album, everything is fine. But I if I choose a specific artist and then play their "Greatest Hits" collections, my ipod all of a sudden starts playing track from all those other "Greatest Hits" albums as well, not just the selected one.

    Is there a way to fix this bug?

    A bit late, but I just found out a way which at least works in iTunes. I had two albums called "Retro", one by New Order, one by KMFDM. I simply edited the Album Title Sorting Field (not the album title itself!) to "Retro [KMFDM]" - it still appears as "Retro" only in iTunes, but doesn't get mixed up with New Order's compilation anymore. Couldn't test it on an iPod, though.

    Might be useful for some of you.
