Q: I’m pretty sure I saw this feature listed in a recent description of an iPod and/or iTunes software update, but have been unable to find it in any kind of Help file. The feature allows you to mark two songs, so that they are “joined,” and always played together during shuffle play. Is my memory faulty, or have I just failed to ask the right question in the iTunes help?

- John

A: No, your memory is fine. In fact, we explain how to do this in a recent article on ripping audiobooks from CDs that you’ll find here. You can join two or more songs - or an entire CD if you want. However, you can only do this when ripping CDs; you cannot join tracks after you import them.
