Help E465 Error handling Duplicate Album Names and Other Issues

First off, I've found this site both informative and entertaining and I greatly appreciate its existence. I've been a longtime lurker who finally was not able to find the answer to his question on ABI so I figured I'd register. I'm filling my girlfriend's father's E465 with MP3s ripped from his CD collection. Basically, I follow this process...

CD>>EAC>>FLAC>>foobar>>MP3>>Picard>>MP3Tag (cleaning up anything)>>Winamp>>E465
(yes I know EAC can be made to output FLAC and MP3 simultaneously)

I've run into the following problems...
  1. He has many albums titled "Greatest Hits." The Sony treats them all as one album when searching by album. Furthermore, it plays the first track of each album, then the second, and so on. Is there any way to fix this behavior besides renaming all the albums to include the artist name?
  2. The Sony play multi-disc albums wrong, again playing all the tracks tagged 1, then those tagged 2, then those tagged 3, etc. Does it not read the discnumber tag? Is there anyway around this without renumbering all the tracks?
  3. I prefer to search by album artist. Is this possible on the Sony?

I hope someone can shed some light on these issues. Thanks in advance.
