Is it just me? - Album art issue

    Does anybody else have issues with their album art occasionally getting out of sync for individual CDs. I have had numerous occasions where for no apparent reason, the album art for a single CD will get replaced by the album art from another one. It shows up correctly in my iTunes but is wrong on my iPod Touch.

    I can correct it by going into the song properties for all the songs on the CD and pasting a new copy of the art so that it has to re-sync with my iPod. But I was wondering if it was something unique to me or if others have had the same issue.

    I also sometimes have a similar issue with video podcasts showing the wrong picture. I have even had a couple of times where the art for a CD shows a picture from a video podcast. Everything plays just fine, but it is kind of annoying to have to be continually correcting album art.

    yeah mine does this all of the time with songs that I burned off of CD's instead of buying through iTunes, but I haven't found it annoying enough to try and fix it yet.

    Yeah, mine did that once... Seemed to sort itself out when I re-synced it. I was like noooo maybe it does this once you reach a certain amount of songs... like it cant remember the artwork... But its been fine since! *touch wood*

    I've had this issue but on my iPod nano. I unchecked sync album artwork in iTunes and synced. I then re-checked it, resynced and it was all good :)

    Thats happened to me to and I fixed it :D
    Select all 3 and then click get info. Then put the artist name, artist album and the title of the album and that should fix it...(I'm on windows btw..) Usually there are a stubborn few and you have to add Sort artist to it so they'll all go together
