    Naming for albums by "Various Artists"

    I have checked with a previous post I made on paths and naming, and my settings appear to be correct according to what Spoon advised me to do.
    Today I ripped an album by "Various Artists" and the results ended up in the desired folder, however each artist had a folder with the album name and the one track that they had contributed.
    Obviously I did something wrong, but what?:lustig3:

    Do you have the reference version of dBpowerAMP? What is your naming scheme? Was the album correctly identified as being a compilation? Do all the individual files have the same album artist?

    You need compilation checked, and the default naming string for them to appear in the Various Artists folder.

    I neglected to subscribe to this thread, so a little slow off the mark in replying, oops! :o
    Wayne, yes I am using the Reference edition and my path is> drive:\folder, and naming is \[artist] - [album]\[track] [title]
    It appears that if I had checked compilation as Spoon suggests I would not have had a problem.
    Everything is easy when you ask da man :lustig12:
    Thanks Spoon!
