    here is what my ipod looks like in cover flow. it should have the artist's name under the album title. it used to but for some reason doesn't anymore.

    also, it doesn't say the artist name in album view either:

    i think for the coverflow to have artists, you need to add album artists

    i have the Step Up 2 soundtrack, when i go into landscape and scroll to step up 2 cover, on the button it says various artists
    but in list form, it says the artists name, e.g. "Flo Rida - Low", etc.
    so in iTunes add in album artists, album artists are the same as artists unless its a compliation or soundtract
