    Hello all,

    I have a problem with the iPod app on my iPhone 4.

    I ripped several of my CD's with "Exact Audio Copy". Then I used iTunes to load them to my iPhone.

    Some of the albums are ok, but other albums shows the name of the interpret followed by the title in the titlelist.


    The titlelist of Enya/And winter came... shows
    1 And Winter Came...
    2 Journey of the Angels
    3 White is in the Winter Night
    This is ok

    The titlelist of Amy MacDonald/This Is The Life shows
    1 Amy MacDonald...
    2 Amy MacDonald...
    3 Amy MacDonald...
    The title is behind the name of the interpret, but I can't read it because the line is too long.

    The files have the same tags (both are ripped with EAC) of course with different content.

    To make it clear:
    there is a tag "Interpret: Amy MacDonald" and "Title: Mr Rock & Roll"
    but there is no Tag "Amy MacDonald - Mr Rock & Roll"

    Why shows the iPhone sometimes interpret and title and sometimes just the title? Does anybody know this problem and is there a solution?

    Thanks for the help and regards....

    it should match how it reads in the itunes music folder, ive spent countless hours renaming my files on itunes so the sort and display properly, i know its a pain but what your expierencing is normal its how the song was encoded to begin with either on the CD or the mp3 file downloaded
