    go to itunes and find all the songs of Disco & disco highlight em all,
    right click> get info > Genre
    tere u can either choose one of the listed generes or type up you own

    do this for wat eva genre are duplicated

    also if u want to sort the songs easily by genre, just click the genre sort bar

    iTunes does not recognize that Disco/disco are the same thing because they are case sensitive. You have to go through iTunes and manually change them yourself. I did this and it took me HOURS. Have fun

    thanks ... stupid apple thing !

    well i was able to change them as macfan said didnt take long but i will have to keep checking.
    of course i have just noticed it does it for artists as well AHHHHHHHHHH

    there really should be a setting for itunes/ipod to ignore caps in artists and genres

    Yes it is stupid. I had albums and artists appearing twice, e.g.
    The Number Of The Beast & The Number of the Beast.
