    So I just updated my ipod touch with the new firmware alongside itunes 9, and on my ipod touch I go to my music and click the 'albums' tab and I see multiple album covers and some missing album art. I know that prior to this day, I have not seen this before. Each album is spelled correctly with the same art. It somehow made duplicates and I have no idea what I did to enable this feature, if this is a feature. Say for example I have an album that has 4 songs in it, but now I see 4 of the same album covers in a row, and under each of the same album covers it lists the artist. But when I tap on the cover to see it, they contain all 4 songs. In landscape view I do not encounter this problem.

    Any one have ideas on how to fix this? I manually manage my music so I know if I spelled an album title wrong or anything like that. I found it pretty annoying :(

    I updated my ipod first, then proceeded to upgrade to itunes 9. Strange to see if that has something to do with it, but i highly doubt it.

    My scrolling of the podcast page on iPod is now laggy, most prob because of the small album art icons.

    Anyone with same problem?

    Firmware 3.1.1
    iTunes 9

    I updated from 2.2.1 to 3.1.1 and am not having the problem described in the first post. I'm using iTunes 8.2, so this is further evidence that it may be an iTunes 9 issue.

    I'm very disapointed about iTunes 9 now,and I wish I had just stuck to 3.0,it was way more decent than 3.1.1 so far.

    So far I'm having the following issues on my 32gb 2g Touch (using 3.1.1 and iTunes 9):

    Podcast scrolling is jerky and not very responsive.
    Double clicking the home button to get the little control screen stopped working (I've gone into Settings->General->Home and modified the setting to Music, but then I have to exit out of whatever app to pause/play).
    Volume slider has completely disappeared a few times with earbuds on. No real pattern. Unplugging and re-plugging fixes it.
    The "updating library" screen after syncing takes much longer than it used to.
    I get sync errors that the iPod needs, for example, 40 more mb of space to sync. I'll uncheck 100-120 mb and then it will sync fine -- but leave maybe 300mb of free space.

    None of these issues ever existed before. I've shut the iPod off and also done the hard reset (top button & home button). Nothing has had any effect. I can live with these annoyances, but they are... um... annoying. Especially the podcast scrolling bug... I listen to a lot of podcasts.

    I've got the same problems, I've done a restore have notices something regarding the jerky podcast listing.

    Restore with nothing sync'd,
    then sync'd my 162 unlistened podcasts, tested the podcast listing and found no jerking, scrolling was smooth like it should be,
    then sync'd rest of my music (1500 tracks), tested the podcast listing again and this time it's jerky with lag in scrolling.

    So I would if they've mucked something up that gets worst the more music, podcasts etc.. you can

    Well, add to my inconvenience -- while syncing after iTunes automatically downloaded a subscribed podcast, I stepped out. When I got back a few minutes later my music on the iPod had drained from 24gb down to 8gb. By the time I was able to stop it, it was down to 6gb. Can't guess what happened. Probably a freak accident; the kind where in the past most of my music would now be listed as the orange other in iTunes and I'd have to start from scratch. Oddly enough, I was able to access the iPod's music section and the artist/album/song counts were all about right but large chunks of the library had blank artist/title fields and a small speaker logo on the right (I should've taken a screenshot!). When I clicked on a song nothing came out, but the screen changed to the same QuickTime-like interface you get when listening to an mp3 attachment in e-mail.

    Right now it's syncing back up. If there's anything more weird worth reporting I'll key it in. (Why didn't I think of taking a freakin' screenshot?) Long, long day.

    songs actyng like podcasts

    After I updated to 3.1.1 and itunes 9, my songs started acting like podcasts, i.e. picking up from it was left off last time. I like o shuffle up my songs and its annoying when a song starts in the middle. Maybe there's a setting somewhere for this but I can't find it.
