I've recently switched to using iTunes full time for my music collection, I'm impressed with how it performs compared to on Windows.

So I've imported my music collection, and sorted out all the covers and such but I have a small problem with one album, on Grid or Cover Flow view this one album shows twice - on one entry it's the first song but on the second it's the rest.

I can't see why it does this, and have took some screenshots to show.

Grid View...


First track, as one album...


One track from the other bunch, shows as second album...


Any thoughts?

Resolved, sorry.

I used list view, and forced an update of all fields for all songs in the album.

For others that run into this, it can often be something like a space at the beginning or end of the album name.

In that case:
Delete and retype the album name of the first one.
If that doesn't do it, do a group edit of the same on the second album.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
