I put several song from the same artist and same album in the iTunes library. there are perhaps 8 songs but the álbum appears 4 times as a diferente album in the library. In the Get Info Menu, Details are identical (not the song of course).

    What about the album artist field? Is that also identical?

    BTW: You are using an old version of beaTunes.
    The update to the current 4.6.x version is free.

    Then I recommend selecting all songs from that album in iTunes and changing both the album name and the album artist to a different value. Save the changes and select the songs again to change both album name and album artists back to the correct name.
