If you want to add an album on iTunes, there is a very simple and straightforward way to do so. You can manually add and organize albums to your liking so everything is exactly how you want. If you albums are not currently organized the way you like, this article will help.
The first thing you need to do is insert the CD that you wish to transfer into your iTunes library. You will instantly see a notification from iTunes asking if you want to import the CD into the library. Select “Yes” to continue. Next iTunes will begin ripping the album track by track and putting them into your library.
Open the Album
Once all of the tracks have been ripped to your library, open up the album in iTunes so you can see all of the songs. Right click on the very first track and select “Show in Windows Explorer”.
Create a New Folder
When you are in Explorer, you will see the album under Compilations. Navigate to the folder called Music, which is located under iTunes Media. Make a new folder that is titled the same as the album. If the folder already exists, you don’t have to do anything.
Copy the Folder
In Windows Explorer or Finder, go the album and right click on it. Select Copy from the menu that appears.
Move the Folder
Next you can go ahead and navigate to the folder for the artist. Right click on the folder and select Paste from the menu. After you have done that, the new album will now be in the folder for the artist.
Go Back to iTunes
Navigate back to iTunes and right click on the album. Select the Delete option from the menu. You will see a prompt that will ask you if you want to delete the songs from your iTunes library. Select “Delete Songs”. Next you will click the “Delete Files in Windows” or the “Move to Trash” button, depending on whether you are using a Windows or Mac computer. Go into iTunes and select “Add Folder to Library” from the File menu. Click on the folder for the artist that you created and press the “Select Folder” button.
Edit the Album Details
Finally, you will need to go to the album in iTunes and right click on it. You will see a pop-up menu appear. Select “Get Info” and navigate to the Details tab. Enter the name of the artist in the “artist” and “album artist” fields. Uncheck the box that says “Album is a collection of songs by various artists”. After you have done all of this, click “OK”. When you go through your library on iTunes, you should see the album appear in alphabetical order. It will now be organized properly so you shouldn’t have problem finding it in the right place.
