Not only am I new to Mac's (but loving the switch!), but I'm new to iTunes as well. Seeing how I've just ordered a 32Gb Touch from Apple, I figured I'd better start finding out what I'd been missing.

So far I've copied over about 10Gb of music to my "Music" folder on my MacBook, opened up iTunes, and then clicked on File -> "Add to Library".

I can see my tracks OK - but when I click on the "List by Group with Artwork", or "Cover Flow" icon, a few of my albums are split into single tracks, even though they're from the same album (the Bob Marley album Legend for example appears 13 times).
Why, and how can I fix this?

Also - what's the difference between my Music folder, and the iTunes Library? Under Advanced I can see "Consolidate Library", which throws up a warning of no return, but what does it actually mean?

Any help appreciated.

Problem solved.

It was a mixture of multiple ID Tag info, and not ticking the "Compilation" check box.

I'm too used to working in a Windows World, and over complicated the issue.

Filling my 32Gb Touch up nicely now with music and movies.
