    Right, Sorting albums has been driving me mad since I got my new Ipod touch 2 days ago. I have about 900 songs which split up into about 550 albums, some with only 1 song. Ive tried over 30 mp3 auto tagging programs (not joking), half just dont work and the other half want you to pay. Some have not renamed them into foreign language albums, some are just completely wrong and the rest have no album art. Its a real mess! Some will be shown as for e.g. "Usher" then "Usher feat." and are displayed sometimes in about 5 different albums for the same artist. I do know how to fix this, but with 550 albums it could take a long long time. There must be a program or something i can use. I mean some can be grouped togethor for e.g. 1 coldplay song has been put into an album from Jamie Olivers cooking songs when it could just be put into a normal coldplay album such as X&Y but as I say, too many albums, I had a go at sorting earlier today, got to album 15 and gave up!
    I really want it sorted properly.

    Im sorry that was so long winded and probably didn't make sense but if you could help I would really appreciate it..

    Thanks!

    I am currently working on my 4000+ iTunes library. I have about 900 left. For album art Google images is awesome.

    I think I will sort it myself, but its whether I do it all and it works. Ive spent all morning renaming all the mp3's to their proper names, I reload them all to itunes and they have changed back! I need a nice solid List of Artist, Track names and Albums. But its having to find which songs go into which album, as all my for e.g linking park songs were in a seperate album each which I have never heard of.

    What I have done is, is erased all of the album info for all my songs. So now My linking park songs are like

    Unknown Album
    Linkin Park

    I think this maybe easier to sort them out now. There are a few out of place which I can move myself.

    Will itunes save the tags?

    Thanks.
