Be gentle this is my first bug report...... But at least I found a workaround.

1. Make sure you have either more than one album with numerical names (eg Prince 1999) or several albums of the same collection like Absolute Dance 1 & Absolute Dance 2 etc.
2. Scand your music folders to fill/update the music database.
3. Goto MyMusic, switch to Album View
4. All songs on albums with only numerical names will be on the first album. The rest of the albums with numerical names will not be in the list.
5. All songs on Collection albums will be on the first in the series (Absolute Dance 1). The rest of the collection albums will not be visible.

So here is a workaround. If you put one ore more characters at the end of the albume name the database scan will find the album.
Absolute Dance 1 (one)
Absolute Dance 2 (two)

Even though there is a workaround I hope it will be corrected somtime in the future.
