Question

Compilation Album - Songs Duplicated in iTunes??

by iTuneDupes / March 14, 2013 7:39 AM PDT

Hello All, hoping someone can help me please.

The songs (tracks) of my Compilation albums are duplicated in iTunes (& iPod). It seems that each song is saved twice - one file is saved as "the artist" of the song AND another file is saved as "the album". It means that, in an album, the same song is in the iTune folder twice. This is especially annoying when playing the "album". As soon as one song finishes - the same song starts, etc.

Any ideas on how I can stop this duplication happening please?
