iTunes not grouping albums correctly

July 10th, 2012

Recently I was putting some music on my iPhone 4 and I noticed that it wasn’t grouping the songs in the same album correctly. Apparently iTunes groups the music based on the album name and the artists’ name when you look at it in the iTunes player on the phone. The first thing I tried was renaming it in iTunes which I thought would work after you edit it and it resyncs it back to the phone but that did nothing for me, I also followed these instructions on this site: Why aren’t songs with the same album art grouped together? and this did nothing as well. I finally found a solution, I removed the album from iTunes and then edited it using Windows properties on each song. The main problem with these songs were that they had multiple artists on each track and iTunes will not like it if those are in the descriptions. So you simply find the tracks on your computer, right click each one and go to Properties and go to Details. Make sure you just have the same artist in the “Contributing Artists” box and also the same “Album” in there, apply that to each one of the tracks and then re-import that back into iTunes and your music should show up correctly, I hope this helps anybody with this issue.
