Exclamation iPod touch 4th Generation won't sync artwork

I know there are other threads about this issue, but mine is different. My artwork does show up on the iPod, but if I were to update the artwork on my iTunes, and sync my iPod, the new updated artwork will not show up on my iPod. Only the old artwork will show. I have not or never jailbroken my iPod. The only thing I have done to my iPod was change the bit rate from its original size to 128 kbps AAC. That may be the problem, but I do not understand. My iPod is up to date in all its apps and software (iOS 6.1.3), as well as my 2012 MacBook Pro (10.7.5). It would be much appreciated if someone will explain my problem to me. Thanks in advance!

Backup and restore from backup with iTunes. If that doesn't fix the problem then try restoring the iPod and starting out fresh.

If that isn't working then it's probably a problem with iTunes. I can't help you there.

Make sure there is artwork on iTunes first for the problem songs, then uncheck or unselect all the music selections from Itunes that do not show the art work on your iPod.

Synchronize with iTunes without these songs.

Afterwards reopen iTunes and re-check/ re-select the music selections you want to have added to the iPod. After the resync you should have the art work included.
