    let's say I put and album on iTunes and then Auto update my iPod, and then later, change some info on the songs, and add album cover art to the music. When I sync again, will it replace the old one, or will it just add another of the same album w/ the new info.

    Yes, most definitely replace.

    I went through my iTunes collection with fetch art and got art for about 75% of my songs (so maybe 3000 songs, of which about 75% again are on my iPod since my iTunes lib > iPod capacity :( ) in one big rush, over a weekend. Even though my 3G cannot display cover art, it nonetheless put every song on the iPod again! :rolleyes:

    That was an unexpectedly long routine update.... :D

    Hmmm ic, thanks guys. I remember when I had first bought the pod, it was on auto, and I synced it once and then a second time w/ new info, and it put the same exact songs on it (new info), doublin' my library. From then I just did it manually. Did they fix this w/ a firmware? Well I changed it back to auto. Thanks Guys.
