    Basic iTunes & iPod question re: artist info
    Have an album by one artist but there are several mixes on the album. I have the following in the Sort tab under Get Info for one song as an example:

    Artist: Swedish House Mafia, Swedish House Mafia vs. Tinie Tempah
    Sort Artist: Swedish House Mafia
    Album Artist: Swedish House Mafia
    Sort Album Artist: Swedish House Mafia

    In iTunes the album is listed under Swedish House Mafia in the Artists section but in the iPod it is shown as Swedish House Mafia, Swedish House Mafia vs. Tinie Tempah in the Artists section. So, I end up with a ton of different artists on the iPod when I would just prefer it to have all the songs under one artist: Swedish House Mafia

    I assumed that the sort would solve that problem but it doesn't appear so.

    So, any tips on how to solve the iPod problem? I know I can just change the Artist to Swedish House Mafia but then I lose the song detail. I could also list it as a compilation but it's not really a compilation.

    Change the Artist tag, move the "vs. Tinie Tempah" to the notes/other info section
