    So i have been trying to figure out why my Elton John greatest hits wouldn't sync when I realized it was going under the unknown artist even tho he is listed.

    I went in and unchecked the various artist for the album but still not working right. I shut off "group by album artist" and it's a bit better, but it has the same cd listed twice, one with half the songs and the other with the other half.

    Any idea how to fix it?

    Highlight all the songs and right click, click "Get Info" and you can edit the artist name/album name. That should fix it.

    You could always get album info from Gracenote. When you insert an audio CD iTunes auto-prompts you if you would like to get album and track info from Gracenote. That always helps me make sure I have the correct album info. I haven't experienced any problems with iTunes renaming audio files.

    Doesn't that get over written with iTunes Match info?

    I don't use iTunes Match. But, I have tried it out and it didn't replace my song info, even any music purchased outside of iTunes.
