    Hello

    [30 seconds later]
    I just realized i hadn't tried deleting and reimporting, and it did solve my problem.

    And yes, I did search the forum prior to posting.
    I recently imported a few albums from files.
    However, there are several albums where the same album appears as multiple albums. Picture:

    I tried merging them by having pretty much the exact same info on all the tracks of the album, but it didn't help. Picture:

    I tried checking all the boxes, so that they all had the exact same artist, album, year, genre etc. - no difference.
    The tracks even have each their tracknumber.

    It should be notes that the tracks are grouped. Picture:

    Is there a way to fix this that I have not tried? Deleting and reimporting?
    Thanks! 0eyvind

    I searched, I even read the very thread you kindly linked me, but it didn't solve my problems.
    I didn't say that I searched in my OP just for fun.

    I am assuming you found the solution..?

    Anyways, there are several techniques that i use. I will select all the duplicates, erase the artist name and album and click ok. I will then select the same files, and click "get info" and fill out the appropriate info. This usually works. Also, perhaps the option "part of a compilation" is clicked, and when you are trying to edit it, it will create new album art. You could also put these in a compilation, and it will have one album art.. I made a nice tutorial on this with pictures.. let me find it..

    I'm sorry GGJstudios.
    I did read the post, but I seem to have skipped the part you wrote about deleting and reimporting, and gone straight to what the OP quoted as the solution he used. And yes, I did solve my problem.

    I've had this problem before, checking "Compilation" fixes it.
