    In my iTunes library, all of my tv shows are sorted and labelled properly. When I go to sync a tv show that has multiple seasons, however, it sorts like this:

    Season1Episode1
    Season2Episode1
    Season3Episode1
    Season1Episode2
    Season2Episode2
    Season3Episode2

    etc... Instead of showing like this:

    Season1Episode1
    Season1Episode2
    Season1Episode3

    etc.. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    What I had to do was edit each tv show episode (all 219 of them,) and add on S after the name and then the season number. So now its South Park S13

    Right click on the file in itunes and go to get info. Then click the video tab and add S13 after South park where it says Show. That is for Season13.

    It took a while. It isn't perfect because now when I go to video it has so many more folders now but it is way better then what it was.

    I wish apple would fix this. Isn't that what the season number and episode number boxes are for? Why did I enter that in if it wasn't going to sort that way in my iPod.

    Thanks for your suggestion, though. I'll be sure to give it a try. :)
