Media Libary Problem

I have artists such as Outkast and Xzibit who have feat. artists sing along with them. The problem is I have no Outkast column in my ML its only Big Boi; same with Xzibit, he does have a tab but still some songs that go on that same CD aren't under his name, they are under the Featured artist. I guess Im trying to say is that I want the Directory name as the name of the Artist in the ML. Thanks for your help guys.

someone correct me if im wrong, but the only way u could fix that (have big boi next to outkast) is to change the artist name of big boi to outkast in the id3 tag.

Edit the CD Info before you rip.
ML > Device -> CD
After CDDB has auto filled in the data,
right click on one of the tracks > Edit CD Info
Manually type in the desired Artist & Album fields
then you can edit each track accordingly, eg. Title (feat. MC Bleh)

Also make sure 'Prefs > CD Ripping > Output File Settings' are set up according to taste

This way, you won't need to go renaming folder/filename/tag info afterwards.

For now, select the album/tracks in the library -> right click > Edit selected items.
Change Artist/Album fields accordingly.
You'll have to edit each Title tag individually.

You also have the option to leave it as is, or to Explore Item Folder and move/rename files. If choosing the latter, you will then need to remove the old entries from the library, and then (re)import the new ones.
