Hi all

I'm new to iPods so please forgive the newbie question!

I've just uploaded a few albums and I see that the tracks are listed with no number. They ARE in the correct order. So that's all good. But if I could choose, I would have the track number (from metadata) displayed as well.

Is that a possibility or a no-no on the iPod Classic?

Cheers

Max

Nope. Similar to Year, there is no way to see this tag data on the iPod.

If you have the whole album on the iPod and access & play the song through the Album menu selection, then it will show "3 of 12", etc., seeming to show the tags, but this display is not actually based on the tags. If you only had 3 songs of a 12 song album, it would successively show 1 of 3, 2 of 3, 3 of 3, even if they were not tracks 1, 2, and 3.

That's a shame. Would have been nice to have that option, but no biggie....

Thanks for clarifying.
