    Hey everyone

    In my itunes library I have an album by an artist but it's separated out into them and then 4 other sections where it says "....Feat..."...Is there any way I can group them all together so that all songs come under one name on my ipod??

    I usually get rid of the 'featuring' bit from the artist section and put it in brackets next to the song title instead. It's the only way I've found to do it.

    I too do this, had fun with Jack Johnson's singalong lullabies album, every other song had one of his mates on it.

    Alright, calm it kermit, I think ArtGoblin there was saying that (mostly) in jest! :p:

    I prefer iTunes to anything else, then again it's the one I'm used to. You're not 'wrong' to like something else...

    Right click, edit song info, go onto sorting, and for 'sort artist' put the name you want them all to be sorted under...

    Whenever I do this, the artist name comes up twice on my ipod - how can I change it so the artist name only comes up once on the artist menu?? Thanx

    Have you made sure the artist name is exactly the same each time? There might be a space behind one of the words - try editing it and pressing backspace at the end of the artist's name.
