Wrong guessing of artist name

I have all my tracks in folders like this:
...\artist\album\01-album.mp3
...\artist\album\02-album.mp3
...\artist\album\03-album.mp3

e.g.
...\Michael Connelly\Trunk Music\01 - Trunk Music

When I pack them, AlbumMaker correctly shows the album as "album", but the artist is either "various" or "01" (the number at the beginning of the first file).
I would expect it to be "artist". That could be guessed from the folder, and the ID3 tag for all the files says the same.

I don't know why this post was missed, sorry about that.

MakeitOne assumes the following for a Normal album
Artist - TrackNumber - TrackName.mp3

I believe the above to be the standard convention for mp3's

if your albums are
TrackNumber - Blah.mp3

They are assumed to be a Various Artist album.

I'm sure it would be useful to have a setting for this but I didn't have plans to add it.
