Sorting Albums on the iPod
Is there anyway to sort the albums chronologically on the ipod? It is annoying to me that it does it in alphabetical order. I'd love to be able to have the albums pop up in release order so you can see the growth of the music.

Or is that agony?
For most things to do with the order of the tunes on the iPod, the only real answer is to go into iTunes and "game" the database by putting in trick titles, clearing checkboxes etc. until it sorts the way you like. Then re-sync of course.

i know you can do it in a playlist in iTunes. - not 100% sure it would work on sync (but it should - other changes do). but easy to test.
make a smart playlist with all your songs in it (ex. bitrate > 0)
first click on the artist column heading to sort by artist. then click on the album column heading. click again and you will see it change to album by artist. click once more and it will go to album by year.
this seems to work in iTunes as least. sort order is now:
artist > album by year > track number
then sync your iPod and see if it works!
