I love using ratings, in fact most of my playlist are dependent upon them. So now that my library is in excess of 70GB I must manage my iPod manually. I noticed today that changes I made to my ratings on my iPod where not making there way back to my iTunes library. Could this be? Can I do something different so that it will work properly? Certainly this can be fixed, if not it is a really lame problem. What good is ratings if they can't be synced?
