    I have two albums... Believe by Disturbed and Believe by 4-Strings.

    When I was working out to 4-Strings, Disturbed starting playing, and really confused me. Its easily repeatable, but whenever I select Play all of 4 Strings or their Album "Believe", the Disturbed CD also called "Believe" is thrown into the play list.

    Whats going on here? Is this something I did wrong in setting up the ID3 tags or this is a known error?

    iTunes/iPod cannot deal with two albums called the same name, it just presumes it's all one album. You'll have to rename one of the albums.

    Or, if you don't want to do that, create a playlist of each album and select that instead of selecting the album.

    Its a comfirmed Bug. Best work around for those in my situation is to take advantage of my BIGGEST filing gripe with Itunes.

    Place a space after the end of the Album title and it thinks its an entirely different Album...(as it should, but can you see the difference between "Tom Petty" and "Tom Petty " if the quotes arent there?)

    Bah, anyways, ignore this. Problem Solved.

    Yeah, I have the same issue, with the exact same albums.

    I did as stated, made playlists of each.
