    ive searched, but the word search comes up on way to many pages, so ill jus start this, is there any way/any application to get the search feature for your music on the touch. i have a lot of songs, and many start off with numbers or artists names instead of the song and having to find each one is a pain, if there is a way to do so please tell me

    This is one of those things I miss from my old ipod, but to my knowledge, a searching app doesn't exist... yet.

    No, there's no way to search on the Touch. The alpha slider is supposed to help mitigate its lack, but if you haven't groomed your ID3 tags properly then you're pretty much out of luck at the moment.

    Id3 tags are basicly the collective information about an mp3 song (song title, artist , album, etc.) which you can edit manually or get automaticaly if you ripped a cd in itunes connected to the internet. In your case, i would try to right click a song, click convert id3 tags, and then check the box that says reverse unicode. This should, hopefully, put everything in its right place.

    Right Click the Song in Itunes, hit Get Info, Go to the Second Tab, and Edit the Tags there.
