    Sorry, wasn't sure how to phrase the subject. Basically I'm ripping my cd collection with iTunes but I DESPISE how, it names multiple artists on one song.

    For instance, I ripped 2pac's Greatest Hits CD and a song like California Love shows up as 2Pac ft Dr Dre as the artist. Is there a way to set it so they all go to 2pac and then the SONG is named California Love ft Dr Dre. I know you can change the album artist on multiple songs but I was hoping there was another way to go about this.

    that's why they added "Album Artist" so you can have the have the artist of the whole album, and then have the artist(s) on that song's artist tag ie. I Love it||Hilltop Hoods Feat. Sia||Hilltop Hoods

    I name my songs like
    Title - Titanium (feat. Sia)
    Artist - David Guetta
    Album Artist - David Guetta

    because in the album view in iTunes it keeps the same artist together (the view that the iPad uses)
    and I feel it looks better in general.

    well ever since they added 'Album Artist' I hid my normal artist column but I don't have an iPad
