Hi,

I have my iPod connected but I can't seem to be able to select albums to play.

Yes I can select an artist and then their album, but this is not ideal if it's a compilation album with many artists.

Is there a way to list all Albums?

Thanks

I think you have to hold the list button down and it will give you various options to sort by, ie genre, playlist, etc but I don't think it does by album (strangely)

Thanks.

I have tried that but as you say there is no option for album. One solution would be to use playlists, but it's not ideal

Likewise, I have no option for Albums, but they are listed under each Artist.










For your compilations, what is given as the name of the artist? Various?

Thats ok for single artists. But looks like I will have to resort to playlists for albums with various artists on them I will have to use playlists. Not ideal but I can live with that.

Thanks

The handbook isn't as clear as it could be about this, but my compilations appear with the artist listed as "Various" or "Various Artists" so easy to find. (Screen shot of iTunes:)

Mine display on the car as the artist name. I could redo this in Itunes, but its not that big a deal.

Think i will go with playlists for now. I may in the end scarp using the IPOD and go with just my memory stick as i can not see any real benefit of using the IPOD. At least in my last car I could not only select the Album but I could also search the IPOD.
