    I'm having issue when syncing my music from iTunes to my iP4S. When I sync, my music isn't being organized on my phone as it is on my iTunes.

    Example: If I have a track that features another musician, I like to organize my music on iTunes by typing the featured artist in the song title instead of the artist field.

    However, when I sync my music to my phone, it won't display how I have it on my iTunes. Instead of the featured artist displaying in the song field, its displayed in the artist field and when searching for music on my phone. The tracks are all disorganized and I have multiple tracks of the same artist displaying.

    Does anyone know why? is this a bug with iOS 5? Or is it some sort of setting in iTunes--my 3GS never had this issue--or is it a corrupted backup file?

    One last note, just noticed when I click on the "Music" playlist under my iPhone Device, all my tracks are organized like I have them on my iTunes but not on my actual phone.

    Sounds complicated, I know, but any help would be appreciated. :confused:
