    Brand new 80 gig iPod Classic syncing with a new MacBook. After importing some CD's, the album will appear in both the "Coverflow" and "Album" menus, but are not present in the "Artist" menu. So far the only two that I have noticed happen to be artists beginning with the letter "O". Anyone have any idea what the problem might be? I was trying to listen to Ol' Dirty Bastard and he doesn't come up in the "Artist" menu, although I can find and listen to "N***a Please" if I go through other avenues. Any thoughts?

    Well, figured this out about 30 seconds after I hit "Post". The albums in question were marked as "Compilations" for some reason, I'm guessing because they featured other artists besides the main one. Fixed them all and the mods can close this as they see fit.
