    2G question - when shuffling songs...

    Hi all, noob here.

    So I just got a 2G touch last week, and I'm frustrated with one thing so far. I like to listen to my songs (close to 3000) on random while I'm at the gym. I figured out how to push the Home button twice to be able to quickly change the song. But it only shows the song title! No artist name, no album.

    Is there any way to change this to show - title, artist, album title?

    oh another thing that annoys me on playback -- Seeing the entire album cover, yet the song title, artist info and album title are written in .00005 font at the top

    Hello. I don't know what to tell you about the small font, except that if you were really determined, I'm sure you could fudge with the typesets if you jailbroke your iPod touch.

    But the double-tap home box thing should show artist, song name, and album title (respectively). Although one would doubt that this is the problem, make sure that the tracks that you just see the song name on are correctly tagged in all of those fields.

    Hope this helped!

    Thanks for the reply, but it is not showing when i double tap home (when ipod is locked)

    I'm pretty sure everything is tagged correctly, but who knows... I could be missing something

    you can add an album art in each of the songs in your ipod. While playing a song in the screen, the wallpaper changes to the album art of the "now playing" song. but it does not = to name etc. but i hope this helps

    Thanks for the replies guys. Too bad I only have about 5% of my albums with any art associated with them...I guess I better get to work! (or hope that Apple works on this!)

    You can add your own art (find the cover on the net, save it)
    In itunes, select a song that is on that album, the right click - pick edit info (? i think) -> go to the artwrk tab -> add. it will apply the image to all songs on that album


    Really???? hmmm i must check that out!

    Ironically named if you ask me, considering no Info is actually Retrieved, you must enter it all your self.
