    Album art/coverflow issues

    I've had 2 problems with album art in the last 2 weeks..

    First I open the ministore in itunes so when I click on a particular song (downloaded with limewire) it shows me what they have in the itunes store, if they have it then I copy the exact artist, title, and album and click find album art... But often I get a message saying itunes couldnt find an album art for this song why? Isnt itunes suppose to see it since its named exaclty like the one in their store? I know we can do this since i used to do it all the time...

    Second I have songs that are from the same artist, and from the same album that are seen both as different album.. The spelling is the same for both... when I sync my ipod and flip it in coverflow mode the album are is there twice with the same name, but i want it only once with the 2 songs in it...

    Can anyone help... thanks in advance!

    For the second problem, the capitals have to be the same on both. Might wanna check that.

    yeah for the second one right click on the song and hit get info; go to info tab; make sure that the album artist, album, artist are all the same; if all else fails delete the album art under the artwork tab and redo it sometimes limewire comes with its own art

    In iTunes ...

    click one song, ... shift click the second (or multiple titles) .. crtl-I .

    change the TITLE of the album .. to .. XYZ .. (or whatever) ... apply ..

    check to see it this has change it and combined the titles ..

    also try the " this is part of a compliation" option ...

    IF IT WORK'd .... Select the titles again .. and change the title back to the Album title.

    also have the second problem. You could try to set the album as a compilation and if you are lucky itune will regroup everything in one album.
