Re: Only 2 artists

What happens when you try playing other artists' songs? Did you try restoring the iPod (note: this will delete all the songs you have on your iPod)?

If this doesn't fix the problem, it's very likely it's a hard drive problem, so try running the internal hard drive test (connect it to the power adapter when you do this). You'd need to start it up in diagnostic mode (after restarting by holding the Menu and Select buttons, you need to hold the Rewind and Select buttons until it goes into diagnostic mode) and then follow the directions on the page I linked to, to run the hard drive test. It will take a few minutes and should let you know whether your hard drive is okay or not.

If it isn't, then you need to replace it and if you're comfortable opening the iPod, it isn't too difficult. If you aren't, you're probably better off selling it on eBay as broken (can get you anywhere from $50-$110) than giving it to a technician who will cost more money than it's worth.

I had this problem, instead of adding the info manually (bar track name) hold down control and select the album then do it all at once, this will ensure that the data is exactly the same

Songs deleted, but empty space and song info. still remain

Get yourself anapod from Redchair software, this works on older PC's and you just drag and drop songs onto your ipod.Its also very easy to delete tracks aswell.Anapod supports adding and deleting photos onto the ipod.

Ipod doesn't show music in artists, only in albums.

Go to Get Info and unclick "Compilation". If it's a compilation it won't show the different artist, which is actually a cool idea.
