Classical music lovers, how do you manage/browsing your database?

I have problems with multi-CD set, such as Mahler syphonies, all operas. I want to see sigle album when browsing, and when I play I play them all in proper order. Is this ever possible? How? Need your thoughts and help.

I have read thw iki before. The method is to split the tracks. I have hundreds of images/cue, I don't want spit them, proper index 00 is important.
I guess there is no good solution now. A 4 CD Wagner needs 1 click Play 3 clicks Add :(

I was using Foobar, Winamp, I used to create sigle cue files contains all images in 1 sets, worked perfect.

First, to have multidiscs sets grouped together as a single album for browsing, go to into Server Settings, Behavior, and find the 'GROUP DISCS' setting. Set it to:

'Treat multi-disc sets as a single album'

You'll need to tag your files with a DISCNUMBER tag, then the disc and track order will be correct.

But playing single discs within a multidisc album can be problematic. When you organize the discs so that a multidisc album is treated as one (which most people will want), then you lose the ability to easily play a whole, single disc within the set. You can either play every single track on all discs, or else you have to add individual tracks from the desired disc one at a time.
