    I was wondering is this a new feature in 3.3.1 or is this a problem. But anyway in the albums tab in my music, for every song that has an artist feat. another artist, it shows the album again but with every song in that album. So it repeats the album over and over. In the other firmwares it only showed the album once. Is this a problem? or is this a new feature? Here's a pic:

    I had this issue with my 64gb 3g... I discovered that some of the albums were not named the same.. let me try to explain...

    Album 1 was called " abc"
    Album 2 was called" ABC"
    Album 3 was called "Abc"

    Hopefully you see what I am saying, some have capital letters and some don't, iTunes seems to not realize that its the same artist/album... make sure that theyre all THE EXACT same lettering... If that does not fix it let me know, and I'll try to help some more...

    EDIT: When you have "feat" it will repeat... you need to take that out... that kinda pissed me off too... If I find a way on how to get the "feat" in I will let you know, but for know, just make sure all the albums are named exactly the same

    first, it's 3.1.1 not 3.3.1. it is a new feature, mine does the same thing. if you want it to look more organized, add "feat. <artist name here>" into the song name rather than part of the artist.

    duece5, Another option you have is to put "feat" after the song name like this "song 123 Ft. second artist"... right click the song in iTunes and go to info, and change the "name" section at the top

    If you want the feat... putting it in the name is the only option for now... as opposed to putting it in the album...

    I don't know if its a new feature or not, but when I called Apple about it they had no idea either way... I just gave up and fixed it all..
