    Go to your Music library from your itunes. Go on top where it shows Title | Artis | etc.... click on the Title listing so that everything is in alphabetical order. Then sync your iPod to iTunes and sync. It shouldn't change much on nothing but the way you want to listen to your music.

    Do you currently have Shuffle switched on? If so, switch it off. Can you play the songs alphabetically now?

    1. In your iTunes Library, click on View/As List. This will cause your Library to list all the songs as one list.
    2. In this view, look for the column headed Name.
    3. Click on the top of the Name column (where the word "Name" is shown) so that the arrow points upwards. Titles will now be in alphabetical order.
    4. Click on Controls/Shuffle. It must read Turn on Shuffle. This means Shuffle is off. (There is a Shuffle icon on the bottom left of the iTunes panel. If it's black, Shuffle is off. If it is blue, Shuffle is on.)
    5. Select the first song and click on Play. When that song finishes, the next one in the list will play (unless the tick box is off). They will play in alphabetical order.

    Let us consider an example-If i were to play Astronomia by Tony Igy i have to search my entire playlist as the artist name start's with T whereas for Alphabeat by david guetta it is in the fourth.

    Huh?

     

    You said:

    which, together with your subject title, I undertsood to mean playing songs in order of song title. So if you arranged the Library as I suggested, Alphabeat ( A - L )would be listed before Astronima ( A - S ), alphabetical order by "name" (song title). Is that not what you want?

     

    Have you arranged your iTunes Library as I detailed in my previous post?
