    Is there an easy way to make iTunes recognize multi-disc albums as a single entry? I'd like to do this to avoid multiple listings for the same album and duplicate cover art while viewing in Cover Flow.

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm new to Macs as of last Wednesday. I'm really enjoying my new MacBook and iPod Touch.

    Instead of labeling it "Album x (disc 1)" and "Album x (disc 2)" simply label it "Album x". Also, if you see every song by itself, make sure that you don't have some weird thing preventing each song from being seen as one album. Sometimes a single space in the title will do that; it's a major bitch.

    That would work. You may also want to change the track numbers from 1,2,3,4... to 101, 102, 103.... with the first digit being the disc number. Otherwise, you'll end up with duplicates of track numbers in multi-disc albums.

    Also, in song info you can record which of the two (or more) discs it's on.
