    So I made a party mix made up of different artists and whatnot. I changed the ID3 tag so that they all have the same album name (MCDP2011)...but when i import them to my iPad2, each artist shows up even when I select the Albums tab.

    What I want to happen is that there is only one MCDP2011 album with all of the artists/songs available after clicking that single album folder. Instead...I get 50+ different albums for each individual artist, but they all have the same album name.

    Is this a problem with the ID3 tag or just something stupid that the iPad Music Player does on purpose?

    Also...I changed the ID3 tags to an album by a single artist...but 5 songs are showing up in a different folder under the same name.

    Change the Album Artist field on all songs to the same thing, like "Various Artists" or "MCDP2011"
