    Some of my songs on iTunes that are in the same album automatically have different sorting info (Sort Name, Sort Album Artist, etc.), and I never put them there in the first place. This causes my albums to be duplicated, and when I go in and delete all the sorting info I don't want (all I want is the Artist, Song, Album, and Genre - nothing else), it doesn't delete it. When I tried entering the same sorting info as the other songs have into the duplicated album to merge it into the first duplicate, it doesn't work... Can anyone help me out here?

    Edit: Well I seemed to fix the duplicate problem: all I had to do was select all the songs in the duplicated album, click Get Info (for all songs in the album at once), and entered the Artist's name which was missing for some reason. This merged the album into one, however I still do not want the Sort Artist to be filled in. Why is this here, and how can I get rid of it?
