    I have just recently received an iPad 3rd generation for my birthday. An odd thing that I have noticed is that some of the foreign artists in the music app are shown as question marks...

    Here the artist's name shows up as "???????"

    but here on a different album it is showing up normally?

    Another odd thing, some also seem to show up normally on the bar at the top of the screen, and also when on the "Songs" tab.

    I have tried renaming them to an alternative name on iTunes and then resyncing, using non-foreign characters and yet they still show up as a bunch of question marks. (For example, "東方神起" to "TVXQ", yet it still shows as "????")

    Any help would be appreciated, and I apologize in advance if I do not adequately provide enough detail, as English is not my native language.
