    I listen to mixes that have songs by various artist and are filed under one album name. Now, my problem is that whenever I go into coverflow, instead of giving the whole album just one picture, it uses the same album image for each song from a different artist and so I have like 20 of the same images for one 1 album.

    If you cannot understand my explaining through text I have included an image of what's going on as an attachment. This will probably be the easiest way to understand my issue.

    Is there anyway make it have just one cover?

    (Please don't criticize the type of music i listen to when you see the image)

    Never Mind!

    Sorry about posting this and wasting space on Mac rumors forum.
    I discovered that the songs need to be set to be a compilation.

    Yeh, change the album to a compilation. Also, change the 'album artist' to 'various artists' and click on the 'album' column header to change it to 'album by artist'.

    Give it a whirl!
