    I have some questions regarding syncing which I hope somebody can help me with. I have an ipod classic and itunes, both are up to date as far as updates available.

    I have album artwork on itunes that I want to get onto my ipod, if I sync the ipod to itunes will I loose the tunes that are on my ipod but not on my itunes?

    I have been finding art work online for some of the albums and dragging and dropping into "info" in itunes, If I go through this process again but using the ipod will it show the album artwork up in itunes.

    The lack of artwork has no real affect on my use of ether itunes or the ipod it is just nice to have.

    Thank you.

    Sorry but yes if you sync and your itunes has different or less songs you will lose songs that you have on your ipod but not on your itunes.

    There are some software you can buy to recover music from an iPod. That way you wont lose any of the music that's on your iPod. It's a process but if you follow directions carefully you should be able to recover the music off of your iPod and drop them into your iTunes and sync all of it back with your new music in iTunes.

    Thank you for the answers.

    As I have 7 weeks off now ( knee operation) I think finding and dragging artwork into my ipod could be one of the ways I will be using to stop myself from going ma, ma, m,a,ma,ma,ma,MAAAAAAAAAAD:D
