View Full Version : tag updates in library and ipod

Jul 25, 2009, 04:03 AM
Hi everyone,

First post here. Hopefully won't be too much of asking but rather contributing.

Here is the situation I am in: I added my music folder to iTunes and sync'd it with my iPod touch 2nd gen. Then I went in to the library and changes around a bunch of tags. Mainly name, and artist. I then connected my iPod and syn'd it with the library.

Problem here is that the changes didn't get sync'd with the iPod.

Anyway I can force it to update the tags instead of deleting all the songs from the iPod and then reselecting which songs. My library is big and I haven't uploaded all my songs into the iPod and selecting the songs again just bores me to death :cool:

Have you tried syncing it again?

Do you have it set to manually sync, or sync to a playlist?

The option set is "Manually manage music and video". And I have sync'd the ipod quite a few time but nothing.

BUT, under the Music tab "Sync Music" is unchecked cause I have two options: either "all songs and playlists" or "selected playlists". The first one is not checked because I don't want to sync all songs from the library and the second option is not selected because I don't have any playlists setup yet.

You could try a Restore, although, you might still have to select all the songs again.

If you do, I'd set up a playlist, and have it sync that instead of manually managing the music.

Did just that. Lost everything. Songs and Apps!

Oh well... thanks for your help though.
