Albums appear in Compilation list

Post by jomtones » Fri Aug 09, 2013 12:53 pm

I've had this problem for a while but can't seem to shift it - lots of 'regular' albums appear in the compilations on my iPod classic 160GB.

SO far I tried deleting all the 'album artist's for non "Various" albums, that didn't help, so I used the Extract Fields script to copy the 'ArtistName' to 'Album Artist' for all the regular albums. Doesn't seem to fix it either. Have you got any idea how I can clear this up?

Many thanks

Bill.

MM assigns the "Compilation" flag to albums on an iPod or iPhone where the contents of the "Artist" field do not match the "Album artists" field

Thanks, I'm aware of this hence my fooling around with the ArtistName and Album Artists tags. SO far nothing I have done can shift it. Very confusing. For instance, I get this album in my 'ALBUMS' list on iPod, and also SOME of it in a 'compilation' too.

Tried rebuilding device database today and resyncing, problem persists, any other ideas?

The fact that the word "Compilation" is in there might have something to do with it. I'm not sure, you could try and remove that and see what happens.
