I've been having problems getting cover art to transfer to my ipod classic. The music transfers fine, but for some reason the cover art doesn't.
Sorry to sort of "double dip" with this post, but I'm just trying to solve my problem, and there are multiple ways to do it. I'm flexible.
My cover art is embedded in the metadata.
I tried using amarok and songbird and rhythmbox. Both transferred the music just fine, but no cover art got transferred.
I tried using gtkpod. It transferred the cover art properly, but it has another extremely strange bug...it will not use my artist ID3 tag. This is confusing me totally!
So I load my files into gtkpod and the artist tags are wrong (I had just changed this whole batch, putting "NEW" in front of the artist name in a bunch of files, to mark my new music). I tagged them in EasyTAG, and all the other programs (amarok, songbird, rhythmbox) read these new tags fine...it is presumably NOT a problem with the tags.
But no matter what I do in gtkpod, it refuses to read my new artist tag. The other fields (song name, album name) it will read if I change them in easy tag. But something about the artist field is not changing.
I tried reinstall gtkpod, as well as killing the contents of the .gtkpod directory. I ran gtkpod both with and without the ipod hooked up. I killed the local directory. I played with the settings...nothing is working.
So can anyone either
Recommend another program that will transfer my songs and album art?
Tell me how to make amarok, rhythmbox, or songbird transfer my album art?
Help me solve this incredibly weird problem where gtkpod refuses to read my artist ID3 tags?
