i don't remember my ipod taking forever to sync like it does not with 5.0 and new itunes. Also sometimes songs that i have fixed with album art before have the album art deleted from them again. its usually the same 4 songs and i always have to delete and then copy them back to the ipod. Also i tried to edit the text of an album and it wouldn't let me change it from deluxe version to non deluxe. i had to actual delete the songs off my ipod and then re add the songs without the words deluxe on it. i should be able to change the way things are labeled on my ipod without resyncing. is this an itunes issue or is it my 5 year old computer that just isn't compatible now.
