Same album titles.  Why split into 3 or more albums?

    Yet another 'can you try ____ post'…

    e.g. more random thoughts



    Open them in another tagging app like …

    Musicbrainz Picard


    Song Genie

    See if they can lookup & repair them, or look for odd feilds. Other apps like SongBird have tag editors that could let you see more or less info too.


    Check your user owns and has write permission on the actual files in the Finder (Get info will tell you).


    Take a look in the video tab to see if there are any fields filled in there, nuke them via the select all & get info trick.


    Can you drag n drop the album files to /Users/Shared/afolder & create a new test user & import to the new iTunes to see if they are broken in there? It may be some obscure preference that is breaking this just for you.

    If it works move them back to you account & see if they fall apart again, you may need to fix permissions after each move.

    Just fixed mine by changing the 'Album Artist' in Get Info > Info tab  to "Various"  in multi artist albums.

    Now back to single albums rather than three or four.
