I have an older PPC6700 that works just fine and I want to use it for my music w/o the need to hook up my iPhone. My truck radio has an input for aux in and I'd rather have an old device rattling around the truck than my pricy iPhone. The only downside with the PPC is that it categorizes everything as a single file alphabetically. What I get is Bach followed by Moody Blues etc..

For example: The Wire Tap Pro recording has about 40 Linda Ronstadt tunes in a single recording so when I chose that file I get all Linda. If Bach was recognized as a single file it would be available as a single album and so on.

So, how do I make an iTune Album a single file?

I'd consider what you are doing very carefully before proceeding. Once you join those tracks into a single file, you're going to have to listen to the entire thing or hunt and search when you want to listen to a single song.

If that 10 yr old device does not recognize albums, genres, etc., so that you can play an album rather than just individual songs, think I'd consider getting a newer device that does recognize albums. Friend of mine just bought some $20-$30 ipod nano style device at Walmart to load his music on for exaclty the same reason - to keep it in his truck. It looks and feels like a piece of junk, but, he says it's working just fine.
