    ok,so yesterday i tried adding a few lyrics to some of my songs in the library,all was going fine,synced my ipod and all the album artwork has gone tits up.....
    "if you are experiencing problems with your ipoid you can restore it" it says in itunes,what exactly does this do ?
    will i lose all my music from itunes and all my album artwork as well ? if i do a restore ?
    god this artwork thing is just so frustrating !!!!!!

    They give you options if you have backed up. You can restore from backup but most often when something is wrong, simply do a restore and it will go back to default settings, leaving it practically like you got it out of the box.

    If the ipod is backed up... and you hit the restore, it will go back to the original settings and copy all of your applications back over... but i don't think it does your music or videos..... but it also copies your settings...

    If you don't back it up, and you restore it.... as said above, it will be like it's out of the box :)

    Hope that is clear :)
