    Hi, this has only happened twice (I have imported numerous albums) but on these two albums I'm having trouble with iTunes seems to be separating the album tracks into different folders, so when I go to cover flow there's like 6 covers for the same album resulting in like 2 songs in one folder, 6 songs in another, 1 song in another etc etc.

    Anyone know how to combine the songs into one single folder?? Kind of like dragging pics into another album in iPhoto for example.

    Cheers for any help guys

    Select all the songs that belong to one album. Press CMD-i to get the Info window, click the info-tab (if its not selected already), and enter the album name and the album artist name there.

    If you go back to the iTunes main window, sort by album or so (and not by track name, cause that will tear the albums apart of course).

    Hope that works. :)

    It sounds like it thinks it's a compilation. Check to see if iTunes reports that under Info.

    Thanks for your responses guys. I've noticed that it seems to have separated the songs that are "featuring" other artists, I got rid of the featuring parts so its just the main artists name and it popped them all in the same folder!
    So kind of worked it out lol
