    CANADA? eh?
    I just filled in the 1000songs that were missing album art on iTunes and now i want to make sure it tranfers over to my classic?

    if i plug it in and click update will it transfer?

    or do i uncheck the box..sync..then check...and sync?

    what will happen is that if you have the iPod set to "automatically sync music" (i.e. you don't drag your music there) then iTunes will delete the songs on the iPod and re-transfer them over with the album art. If you drag music yourself onto the iPod, you need to delete the songs on the iPod and re-transfer them yourself. Although you could have simply dragged the album art to the little window while playing the song OFF OF YOU iPOD, in iTunes, you've already done all the work, so you may as well delete them and re-transfer them. It is a pain, but that's how I did it on my 80Gb Classic.
    Hope that helps...
