I have some disks or shows that are broken up into folders, by set or disk. While the track numbers are set up to be sequential and the album/show titles are tagged properly, slim server lists them as 2 albums. THe setting is set in the server software to treat multi-disk sets as a single album, but it does not appear to be doing it correctly. Have i missed something? Thanks.

there's a tag called discinfo, delete it from all your tracks.

First off, if you were to put all the tracks in the same folder, I think it
would work how you want it. That said, here is the technique I use to get
this to work.

First, set the album title the same for all discs. Second, set the TPOS (or
Part Of Set) tag to 1/3, 2/3, 3/3 etc. as is appropriate for Disc 1, Disc 2,
etc. Third, have the track numbers restart for each disc so that each disc
has a track #1. After a full rescan, the track list when playing the album
should show:

1-1
1-2
1-3
....
2-1
2-2
2-3
....
3-1
3-2
3-3

HTH,
Ben
