    At work, I opened my iPod in iTunes, and pasted in lyrics. When I got home, I set my iPod to synchronize, and then checked - my lyrics were not on that song. So I set it back to manual so I could check that song on my iPod - the lyrics are gone.

    It appears that synchronization goes only one way - at least for lyrics (I didn't test other things such as rating).

    This doesn't make sense to me. If I rate my song on my iPod, I want it to stay rated.

    I think everything is controlled from iTunes. and although you can view what is on your iPod I assume it doesn't change need to do that on the computer you sync with and in the itunes library of music...just a guess.

    i think iTunes saves lyrics in an .xml file (or at least in a database...). synching only syncs the song itself. and the lyrics isn't stored in the e.g. .mp4 file...
