Sorting and Album Art Problem with Duplicate Album Names

Post by HokieMatt » Fri Apr 05, 2013 1:04 pm

My collection has a number of albums titled "Greatest Hits". These are all from different artists, they are stored in the proper folder/file hierarchy, and the correct album art is stored in each folder. In Neutron, if I scroll through the database by Artist --> Album, when I try to open any one of the Greatest Hits albums I get ALL tracks from every artist with a Greatest Hits album on my device. Furthermore, Neutron has assigned the album art from one artist to all of the others.

How can I fix this?

I found the solution to this - under Database behavior there is a setting to use folder locations to create "more unique" albums. This worked.

You found correct setting which is making albums more unique: Database -> ALB FOLDER option. This option adds path to album unique Id generation and thus same named albums are no longer the problem. This option will work only if albums are sorted in separate folders.

Try Duplicate Files Deleter as it can remove any problems that you might have.
