I just loaded an album into itunes and one song is split up from the rest as a separate album. I've checked all the info and it's exactly the same as the other part of the album. Any idea how to fix this?

I have this problem also with a couple albums, so I'm hoping someone has a solution.

Adding a "me too" to bump this thread. I even copy & pasted all the info (except for the track names, of course) and still a couple of tracks are split from the rest. It doesn't make sense.

Can you post which albums you're having this problem with? And how did you get the tracks named? GraceNote through iTunes?

For me it's "Onion Radio News" podcasts, downloaded through iTunes. They've been showing as one album as they downloaded since mid-2007. Within the past couple of months, they started to split. I thought I simply had too many... Was up to more than 50 tracks (only 1 in 5 are worth saving, IMO), so I went through and deleted a bunch... To a tidy 20 or so. Can't fix it.

Try changing the album name field to XXX on all of them and then change it back. Also try setting the album artist name for all of the files.

I believe that's what I recommended in the link just above your post.
