    I can't get iTunes 11.4 (on Mac OS X Lion) to stop syncing the same 766 song's Album Artwork. It was working fine until I synced some photos. Now, every single time I try to sync my iPhone, it says Syncing Artwork.

    It's 766 songs. They wizz by too fast to figure out exactly which 766 songs (out of about 5,000 are having an issue saving the artwork.

    I never had this problem on my iPhone 5s.

    Anyone have any tips for me? I've tried restarting my iPhone and my computer already. I also made sure I had closed.

    I'm just running out of ideas. Anyone have a similar situation or know how to stop this from happening every time? It's not like it takes a long time to do it every time, but I don't wanna wear out the internal memory too fast.

    Just so people are aware if you have this issue. I fixed it by going into iTunes Preferences>Advanced and resetting warnings and clearing Cache.

    Hopefully if someone has the same issue, this helps.

    Same problem here.

    I tried, as suggested, going into iTunes Preferences>Advanced and resetting warnings and clearing Cache.

    It did not work. I have other iPads and iPhones but only the iPhone 6 Plus has this behavior

    Any one else experiencing this or suggestions?

    Didn't work for me and I've sent the issue to Apple a week ago. I'm still getting the same problem after setting phone as new>restore from iCloud then re sync everything all over again.
    The odd of thing I discovered that while the album art are re syncing, of those albums aren't actually in my phone and will skip to the next track with album art.

    Why can you not get 12?

    I have an old MacBook running Lion (10.7.5), and I got the new iTunes 12 straight through Software Update.
