    Hi Ellsa,

     

    Not sure which view you are looking at, but a couple of things:

     

    1. Make sure that you have "Show Sidebar" turned on (under View at top - turn on Show Sidebar).

     

    2. When you are looking at, say, a Playlist, you have three view options for that Playlist - Grid, Artist, and List. Those are selected from the litlle dropdown box on the right-hand side, once you have selected and are displaying a Playlist in the windwo.

     

    Hope this helps!

     

    Cheers,

    Gail - It's not a view issue. It's an issue where, for some reason, since I upgraded both itunes and my iMac to Mountain Lion, it's not reading the song information online, thus the burned playlist CD is "Untitled" and the songs show as Track 1, Track 2, Track 3 and so on. This has never happened before...... Anyone know what is causing this issue?  First time problem for a long time iTunes user.

    Oh, sorry - misunderstood entirely! I know we have some real iTunes experts here, so let's let one of them tell you how to fix this!!!!

     

    Again, sorry for the misunderstanding!

    So, Gail  - Just FYI - here's what worked: I installed the Adobe Flash Player thinking that the problem had to do with blocked plug-ins. ...... .. . .... I burned the same playlist to a cd, it was appropriately named, all of the song/artist information was captured etc. Everything looked back to normal.....then, I found this info which i thought might be helpful to others having  trouble with Mountain Lion bugs/issues:

     

     

    One that Apple may have blocked for security reasons, currently likely to be Flash Player related.

     

    Two bugs, one affecting Apple's Mac platform and another attacking Microsoft's Windows, exploit certain Flash player vulnerabilities to install malware onto users' systems, reportsArsTechnica. While users of other operating systems like Linux have yet to report attacks, Adobe's advisory notes the exploit affects all platforms.

     

    Designated as CVE-2013-0634, the first vulnerability targets the Safari and Firefox Web browsers running on OS X, and is also being used as a trojan to deploy Microsoft Word documents containing malware. For Mac users, the flaw affects Adobe Flash Player version 11.5.502.146 or earlier.

     

    On March 1 Apple again blocked Flash Player for Lion and Mountain Lion:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5660

     

    The Adobe Flash patch can be found on Adobe’s website, and users can visit this page to check if their software is the most curent version.

     

    You should uninstall any previous version first, and repair permissions after installing the new version.

     

    Upgrades. Hmmmm.....
