    Hello all.
    I have a problem with iTunes, I downloaded 20 albums from Thunderdome, and the album names go like this:
    Thunderdome I
    Thunderdome III
    Thunderdome VI
    Thunderdome IX
    In roman style.
    And so forth. But the problem is that iTunes doesn't sort them
    I
    II
    III
    IV
    V
    But it does
    I
    II
    III
    IX
    V

    Is there any way I can make iTunes to show it correct? All my album art in coverflow is all wrong now:(

    what you need to do is pull up the "get info" panel for each file, and go to the "sorting" tab. Under this you can put the sorting name of the album as yada yada 1 and yada yada 2 and then itunes will sort them correctly. You'll still see yada yada I and yada yada II in itunes but it'll be sorted by this hidden name.

    Good luck.

    Btw, isn't there any way to do this tagging to an album at once? Instead of putting the tag in individual:confused:? I have thousands of songs I wan't to apply this to, but clicking 7800 times for this is not something I want to do:(
