    Question Grrrrr ITUNES!

    Right, one of you will know this one,

    You rip a CD into your PC , you then add the file in iTunes and the to your iPhone, great, but when you look for the CD its filed it all over the place and you cant just play a straight CD!

    HELP!

    You need to right click on the files in iTunes and go to properties, there is a tick box in there that is something to do with making it part of a compilation - you need to check that

    Sorry I can't be more specific, I don't have iTunes to hand to check exactly

    This is correct, that should put the album in one folder

    Didn't quite understand what you meant at first Turkster, but seeing these replies now makes sense

    on iTunes if you select song or album group and right click on it it will bring a drop-down menu up. There is an option that says Get Info. Click that and then under one of the tabs there will be an option which says 'Compilation'

    Given iTUnes checks the Gracenotes database when you upload the CD, it ought to know it was a compilation anyway?

    iTunes is like all Apple products - form before function. It's about time Apple focused on getting the basics right, or are it's customers so blinded by the Apple hysteria they don't care??? I've given up trying to get my iPOD classic to behave the way I want it to and not the way Apple or iTunes decides for me.

    What gets me Jason is the constant updates to itunes that then messes up everything you have on your ipod and it takes ou hours to fix it the way it should be again.

    I have managed to spend enough time on iTunes and get it to behave as i want it to. It's just a shame they don't allow yout to copy muisc and pictures using a drag and drop technique

    To be honest you just gotta anticipate exactly what it is going to do. Gracenote data isn;t always tip top unfortunately. I'm always renaming stuff before it get added into my iTunes. Half my files aren;t even stored in iTunes filder anymore - as soon as the CD is imported I copy and keep all my music and vidoes on my external harddrive and they are just 'imported' into iTunes. This means if I want to use WinAmp or any other media source it won;t affect any of my files unless they are in the music folder on your C-Drive.

    I like iTunes because I find it very user-friendly once you know how. The music is organised tidyily and such that I can find things with ease. I do have an iPod and iPhone but I'm far from one of these Apple arselickers.
