I have an Ipod Nano, 6th generation I think. How do I set it to play music alphabetically by artist please? This occurred once by accident but have not been able to do so since. Also, how do I know when Shuffle is on or off? There does not seem to be a highlight or different color when tapped.
Thank you-Paul

Here is the owners manual. The answers might be in there.

Thank you Thorzdad. I have the manual and checked almost all pages very closely. Some of the instructions were confusing but none directly addressed setting up via artist, title, etc. Seems the default is by title however.

Thanks again

You could always make a playlist in that order in iTunes and play that playlist.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Sounds good. Will try that in current playlist used to sync with I-Pod. Or do I need to create a new playlist and populate with current playlist tunes?

Thank You

Start with a new playlist. See that it works for you before you change any other playlists.
