    Hi Guys,
    Quick iTunes/iPod question.. the answer may be stupidly simple but i just can't figure it out so any help would be much appreciated!
    Right in my iTunes library/ on my iPod my library is sorted alphabetically by Artist which is great, but within the artists themselves their individual albums are further sorted alphabetically but I want them organized chronologically by release year, so for example, for Christina Aguilera (keep your opinions to yourself!!) they are ordered in my library as Back to Basics, Christina Aguilera and then Stripped (ie. alphabetically!) but I want them to be ordered in correct release date ie. Christina Aguilera, Stripped then Back to Basics whilst still retaining the alphabetical order of the artists.. does this make any sense to anyone? haha! Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks in advance. :)

    You can click on the album sort field twice - first click, it will sort albums by artist, then by album name. Second click, it will sort by artist and then by release year.

    That was stupidly simple! thanks for the reply! Just wondering, that worked great on my iTunes library, will it also do the same on my iPod? Thanks..
