    After updating to iOS 5, I noticed the artist list didn't match up to what it was in iTunes.

    Now, before anyone says anything, I fully admit to being overtly anal about this.

    As an example, I have a few albums by Bruce Springsteen; and in iTunes, they're all in that exact name. However, on my iphone, one album has it BRUCE SPRINGTEEN. I have gone in and re-written it, but the name stays the same on the iphone.

    Additionally, I have some songs that are in iTunes and are not copying over to the iphone, after OS 5.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Know a fix?

    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks, but I already tried that.

    Still the same.

    first of all, good taste in music :) Secondly, yes, I've had much worse than this, a large chunk of my albums are listed by individual track, albums don't show up in the album view but I can find by searching, and the whole thing is generally borked.

    You can try checking the info. Some of my artist names were mixed up on my phone but fine in iTunes. So I went and checked some of the song info and found what was making it wonky on my phone. If that makes sense.

    I have the same issue. Can't get song info to update on the phone.

    I'm using the drag and drop method not sync.

    I drop a song onto my phone. then in itunes pull up the get info for songs change the details and save. it shows the changes i made in tunes but they never change on the phone.
