    Please help me! :(

    Can somebody tell me why certain albums are placed all the way at the end, when viewing Cover Flow on my iPhone?

    For example, Jay-Z's Black Album shows up as the very last album... instead of next to other Jay-Z albums I have.

    This doesn't happen in iTunes Cover Flow - only when using Cover Flow on my iPhone.

    There is nothing wrong with my tags or artist input, or anything - the Black Album is still listed under Jay-Z albums when you touch his name... It's just that when viewing it in Cover Flow, it's out of order. As if instead of Jay-Z, the artist was like 999 (past 3 Doors Down, 3OH!3, etc). The VERY last album.

    This has happened to other albums too.

    Oh and before you suggest, it's also NOT marked as a Compilation. There are no compilations in my music.

    What gives? This is such a weird glitch/bug

    Do you have a space in front of Jay-Z's name?

    EDIT: Off Topic I know, but I checked the back end of my cover flow mine and noticed that it's smart enough to know true numerical order, not just sort by first character:

    16 Horsepower
    23 Skidoo
    99 Chants
    808 State
    2020 Soundsystem

    This thing keeps impressing me.
