renaming to 'various artists' in WMP 11+

  theDarkness 13:38 12 Feb 2010

I have a couple of albums with 'soundtrack' as their genre within WMP. each track on these albums has a different artist noted in the 'contributing artist' column within WMP. if I rename the album main artist name to 'various artists' (between the album name and album genre, next to the album cover image on the far left), my problem then is that the 'contributing artist' info all gets wiped and changed to 'various artists', for almost all albums.

So I have some albums that have the correct artist names within 'contributing artist' for each individual track, yet the main album artist info on the left is still set to 'various artists'. How can this be? Is there a way to always change the artist name to 'various artists' without wiping the 'contributing artist' info? I dont understand as to why this almost always happens, yet there is always one or two albums in which their info is not lost!

thanks for any info! i hope thats not too confusing :)
