I have an issue with SC listing several albums for each disk that I have for a single album.

iTunes shows the album as one album and SC is set to use iTunes.

I have also set the following options as shown...

[ ] List compilation albums under each artist
[x] Group compilation albums together

[ ] List albums by all artists for that album
[x] List albums by band

[ ] Treat TPE2 MP3 tag as Band
[x] Treat TPE2 MP3 tag as Album Artist


Can anyone suggest what I can do, or what I am doing wrong.

Thanks.

On the same settings page, you need to set Group Discs option to "Treat Multi-disc sets as single album".

You also need to make sure all discs in the album have the same album name and have the disc number tag set.

Thanks, I do have "Treat Multi-disc sets as single album" set, but not my tags.
I don't have any tags set with regard to disk numbers or sets.

That's gonna be a pain in the proverbial for my 8500+ tracks, half of which are compilations.!

with the right tools that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Hi

Do not forget the ITUNESCOMPILATION tag

Ah, that might be an issue, as I prefer to manage my mp3 myself.
my iTunes has read-only access to my music.
