    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:

    Thanks.

    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.
