Does anyone know what the new iTunes feature of grouping multiple CDs of the same album together means? Is it fixing the problem where sometimes they don't? Does it allow CDs with the names [disc 1] and [disc 2] after them to be grouped together? I have been taking Albums of mutiple CDs and using the "disc" fields and that seems to work.


I really dislike Apple's SCANT help on new features. I had to go dig through the (VASTLY) revamped view options to figure out where the ability to show album art in list view was hidden, and the help files have not been updated with the new mini view. A little more help would be nice Apple...

    I have the same issue.  My multi-disc albums still appear as two albums.  I had some with and some without the Disc 1/Disc 2 in the Title.  None of them are grouped.  I'm confused.


    Also, agreed on the View Options to see the artwork in Songs view -- that should have defaulted to On.

    I found this screenshot on MacRumors of what is supposed to happen.  I have no idea how they got this to work.

    I got it to 'activate' on a two disc set by setting the option Part of a Compliation to Yes on both discs.  By the way, I had to leave Albums view and come back for it to display properly.
