    I thought that iTunes was supposed to edit id3 tags no? When editing info in the program it does not affect changes to the files themselves, how should I go about fixing this?

    Another small itunes related matter is that when plugged in it does not register on my desktop (even though I have the option t do so checked off)

    thoughts?

    Right-click on the song(s) in question and select Convert ID3 Tags.

    iPod?

    The iPhone and iPod touch don't have disk use as an option (it can't be used as an external drive like other iPods), that's why it doesn't show on the desktop. Totally normal :)
