    Hi there,

    So I'm trying to transfer these mp3s from a cd that are in English characters in My Computer, but when I transfer them to my iPod with iTunes, it makes them all a bunch of indistinguishable characters.

    Does anybody know how to correct this?

    Thanks a lot. :)

    Here's a snapshot I took to give you guys more of an idea. Ignore the Playlist characters as they're supposed to be like that (Greek letters.)

    I have analyzed your screen cap and believe I have isolated the issue. I have circled what I believe to be the problem below:

    Here I have outlined what I believe to be the easiest fix:

    :p



    Seriously, it looks like a unicode problem. I see a lot of right-clicking and changing of artist & title tags in your future.

    Hehe nicely done.

    Sounds like a languages/fonts issue. Check fontbook and also see if greek is supported on the iPod otherwise you end up with garbage lettering. Only thing I can think of I'm afraid!

    EDIT: actually the post about changing to OSX might have some truth to it - WinXP is terrible at foreign language character support whereas OSX installs it all by default. Get your WinXP CD and go about installing further languages.
