Righty so I have a few issues which have completely confused the hell out of me.

1st: Im VERY exact with my artists and titles. All Artists have the proper album names, matching fields. CD numbers, and track numbers, Artist names, and genre's

However I still have this problem:

sometimes Itunes just doesnt want to go ABC. I can click the ABC thing for alphabetical order. Close itunes, start it back up. But Fucking Eminem is Between A and B.

ALL OTHER artists are in the correct ABC order, Eric Church, Elton John, Eli Young band, Electric light orchestra all in the proper placement of E. However I for some fucked up reason itunes has it,

Alan Jackson
Eminem
Barenaked ladies
C
D

Any help?

Also: My ipod fails to show Certain albums in the "Artists" fields.

IE select music > Artists
when you select an artist if they have 2 or more albums synced to the ipod it then lets you choose which album. However on many artists, Dispite HAVING the album
when you "search" your ipod, it wont show up under Artists OR Albums fields.

this is REALLY starting to piss me off.

apple computing is non-deterministic
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

When you click on the song info, there's a sorting tab. If there's anything in those fields, it chooses that over the actual title/artist/ect.

Wookie monster, Thanks went through the Sorting tabs and found small errors, sometimes it had wrong artist field or album sort field.

now I just need to figure out why ipod wont show artists with 2 or more albums.

It might just be a problem in the download. What you should do is back-up your iPod, then restore and install backup.
I think this should work. Just be careful because you don't want to wipe everything, then have no backup to re-install.

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

^^ tried it. Moved Every song into a 32 Gig stick, (made it super pretty and everything, Have it done by Artists With each album under the artist name and within the album the songs + Album artwork image.

Its so pretty.

Anyway yea deleted entire Ipod library and then Re loaded the entire thing. Cleared entire Ipod.
Re synced entire thing, No dice. any artists with 2 or more albums Do not show up under

Music > Artists

when I select it, Yet they appear under Music > Albums
and Music > Songs.
