I've created a playlist/compilation of various artist in iTunes under an album name and ticked the "part of a compilation" box then transferred it to my ipod. On there all the songs are shown under the artists names and not as an album so i have to search through to find them.
How can i get them to show as an album instead?

Most people accomplish what you're doing by making a playlist, not grouping the songs as an "album" by editing their Album tag and designating each song as "Part of a Compilation".

But if that's the way you want to do it, and treat a group of songs as a Compilation album, then you need to set your iPod up to display Compilations. I don't remember the steps on a 4th gen iPod, but look under Settings see if there is a "Compilation ON/OFF" option. I think it was the 5th gen iPod that moved it to "Settings/Main Menu" and "Settings/Music", but earlier models had this option right in Settings.
