    Hello, I've been looking at the different views in itunes. The middle one (Show items in a list grouped by artwork) when I look at it shows the same album many times with a few tracks on each occurrence. For example;

    Album cover : tracks 1-3

    Same album cover : tracks 4&8

    Same album cover : remaining tracks

    So, is there a way I can get them to display all under the same album.

    When this problem occurs: what happens when you click on the column header to sort the list by album?

    That was my first question too. I've had albums that appeared to have the same title, but which repeat. My solution is to select a song in one album, cut the title, then select all of the songs in the other album, to change the title to what I paste from the other.

    When this happens, the two iPod albums consolidate.

    Tried cut and paste – no dice. I know sometimes a word being capitalised or not will change kick songs off album groupings.

    It strange – if I click on the album name in the "Browser" they all appear together, as they should. Just repeats when I scroll down through them all.

    Hmmm. I tested this out - I'm getting the same thing. I never used this option before, but turned it on, sorted by album, and saw some "Greatest Hits" albums interspaced like this. I renamed these albums - adding on the artist in the title, and the problem went away.

    Select the tracks you want to be grouped, go to properties of all the tracks together and rename the Album name accordingly. this will eliminate any chance of a "wrong" name or whatever...
