My photo folders will sync not alphabetically but random inside my ipad. Any suggestion on how to sync alphabetically without having to delete the ipod photo cache, I have 13500 photos and it takes for ever for for I tunes to rebuilt the ipod photo cache. Thanx

    If you mean the photos within the albums then they will be ordered by the photo's capture date if syncing from folders (you can set the order on a Mac in iPhoto and Aperture), and the only way to change the order is by manipulating that date on the photos prior to syncing - more info on ordering http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4221 .  I don't whether this will change in iOS 5, but you could try leaving feedback if you want the option to have them alphabetical : http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipad.html

    Thanx King but I dont mean the photos, I mean the albums or the folders which the photos are in. The photos are ok, I have change their names with photoshop at bridge and they are ok, the problem is the albums or folders... Thanx

    My albums do appear alphabetically, but I'm not using any photo program on my computer to sync via. Are you just syncing from folders or are you syncing via Photoshop/Aperture/iPhoto - in which case are the albums appearing in the same order as they are listed in the sync screen in iTunes and/or in the program on your computer ?

    Im using Itunes to sync the photos to my ipad. I used bridge for the photos to batch rename... But folders are untouched. on itunes they appear alphabetical but when they sync they go random. Thanx
