Go to the View menu and make sure that it says show duplicates. If it doesn't, click on view all.

Make sure that the songs are listed by "Album by Artist." If it isn't it could show one song per album.

Actually, I said to make sure it says show duplicates, not click on it. Click on view all.

For sorting by "Album by Artist" go into the pane that has all of the tracks listed. Click on the tab that says "Album by Artist." If it's in some other setting it could be all screwy.

It's the highlighted one.



I noticed that this seems to only appear in the Music library and not in the playlists.

I don't have that.

I have Name/Time/Artist/Album/Genre/My Rating/Play Count/Last Played.

I right clicked on the thing and it gave me a list of what i can put in the row but it didn't have Artist by Album.

Here is a snap shot:

I'm pretty sure you should tick the box next to 'Album Artist' (2nd option from the top) to see the Album by Artist column.

Try sorting just by album. If the tracks are still popping up with one per album, try right clicking on them and then click on get info. Try to see what is different between the tracks.

I did a quick search on the apple support site and there's an article there that might help. I don't use IMs anymore so I can't help you there.

As long as you don't delete your iTunes folder under My Music (or whatever folder you store your music under) your tracks should still remain. You'll just have to tell iTunes to find them. However, if the problem is with the song IDs, then reinstalling iTunes will not fix the problem.
