    I know it has been asked before. I'm a new member and I got an iPod Touch 16GB for a month now. Everything works fine except for 1 thing:

    The coverarts are getting changed everytime im syncing. Keane changed with Gregor Salto, Santana with Akon etc.

    I tried to covert the ID3-tags to 2.4 and I re-synced alot, nothing helped so far.

    Anybody got any ideas? Is it a bug that can be fixed?

    Thanks in advance.

    Greets, Chris

    Sometimes iTunes tries to oversimplify things, so mix-ups can happen. Here is what I do:

    1) Download album art manually and save it to a folder (I know it's a pain, but it is more reliable I find)
    2) Go to iTunes, and select the ENTIRE album, not just one song.
    3) In the box in the lower right hand corner, check the check box, and double click on the big white box
    4) Navigate to the album art image
    5) Wait for it to apply

    Sorry if this is what you're already doing, but this is the way I've found it to work.

    BTW, chavez_ding, I'm guessing you like Tom Clancy's books, or this is just a coincidence!

    you know how there I'd a setting in iTunes where you can tell iTunes to download missing album art automatically. Does this cost money?
