    Hi, I have 2 seperate questions and I think they are common ones. Thanks for your help.

    1. I'm updating my library and sync'ing alot of new music into itunes and after putting it all in the order I wanted ( by genre ) I sync'd and my coverflow was in alphabetical order. I want it to appear as it shows on the list. Is that possible or does it automatically go A-B-C etc..

    2. I haven't looked in awhile but is there anything good out there to connect your touch to your cd player? I dont have a cassette deck nor do I have an mp3 input. I remember reading about FM transmitter's but saw mixed reviews. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    1. Cover flow does that automatically. There is no way around that. Sorry.

    2. I've used FM transmitters with previous generation iPods and they arn't bad. It depends on where you live though. If you have alot of empty radio frequencies then it will be much clearer. But driving around sometimes you hit bad areas where the signal will cut out (cell phone towers mostly). If you don't have a cassette or mp3 input thats you're cheapest option other than buying some sort of car connection kit.

    I use an Itrip for my car. The sound isnt awesome quality, but it's very good.

    Thanks for the replies. I am going to get one this weekend. My truck is leased so I didnt want to have an input installed.

    I tried the fm transmitter and didn't like the fact that you couldn't control the volume from your iPod just the stereo controls. You had to crank the volume way up to hear you music.
    I also tried the cassette deck thing and it worked much better, but they break.
    I decided to just buy a new stereo with an aux jack to plug my iPod touch into. Control sound from the iPod, sounds great and no signal loss.
