I had a bunch of songs on iTunes that didn't have artist names, so consequently, I didn't have artist names on my iPod touch. I added artist names to all the songs I have on iTunes and now the artist names are not even showing up on my iPod. It just says "Artist Unknown" I really have no idea what to do. Can someone help me?
I faced the same issue after upgrading my iPod touch to iOS 5.1.1. I ended up restoring it to factory settings, and setting to auto-sync with iTunes (I ordinarily prefer to sync it manually!). I also had to change not only all "artist" names but also "album artist" names, as the new software appears to list the music according to album artists.
