The way my songs on iTunes and iPod are alphabetized are completely different. On iTunes, the songs are alphabetized without regard to the words "the," "a" or "an." So the songs "The Fly" and "Fly Me to the Moon," for example, are next to each other.

But on my iPod, the words "the," "a" and "an" are used to arrange the order. So all the songs that begin with the word "the" are grouped together.

Is there a way to change the way iPod arranges its songs so I can have them displayed the same way iTunes does?

    I suppose there is no way to correlate the way songs are sorted on iTunes and iPod?

    when you look at the song list on the iPod it should be alphabetized.

    he IS right. the alphabetizing is different.
    it would be nice if everyone at the mighty apple was on the same page but apperently they are not.
