First iPod question

As I posted, I just bought a 4G iPod and I've managed to find my first question. Is it possible, and if so how, to set the iPod to scroll the names of the Albums when you're browsing them. I listen to Dance music and a lot of my albums are actually double CD's with longer names, so I'll see two CD names truncated and can't tell which is which. Any tricks would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. My problem isn't with not seeing albums, but that album names are truncated in the display because they are too long. Is there a way to set them to scroll when they are selected so that the name scrolls by like a news ticker?

Actually I would like to know this also, since they don't seem to scroll for me either.. and that would be a very nice feature.. if it even exists I know that iTunes does it..

Unfortunately, I think the answer is no.

the only way to fix it is to rename em im pretty sure so you can tell the difference

fortunately, I'm pretty anal about my naming conventions so I can tell which is which, but it does seem like a design flaw to me.. Thanks for the replies everyone.
