    Grouping multiple albums or songs into one album

    When songs are imported from compilation albums, they are apportioned and registered in multiple albums.
    The procedure for grouping songs of different artists and albums into a single album is given below.

    What is a compilation album?

    A compilation album refers to an album of songs recorded by different artists, as well as an album of songs recorded in different albums by the same artist.
    When you import songs from an audio CD to “Music Center for PC,” the imported songs whose album artist name and album name match are registered as one album. Therefore, the songs in a compilation album are registered as multiple albums.
