Album art correct in itunes wrong on iphone

Sorry if this has been answered before, I did a search and found similar problems but no long term solution.

My problem is the album art for like 10 albums is messed up they all have the same art work on my iphone. I have checked iTunes and they are correct but wrong on the phone. I removed all music from my iPhone and proceeded to resync. After the sync I checked coverflow and a few albums and everything worked. Synced my phone again for an app update and when i went back to music the album are was screwed up again. I have gone through this process twice now. After the first load of all the music it looks correct but every subsequent resync it gets screwed up. Can anybody help.

FYI I have auto sync set for itunes. I could try manual but when I used to do that I would always forget what music I have already synced and would have to resync them all. So if possible I would rather not go that route. Unless somebody has a good way of doing manual sync and remembering what needs to be synced if you don't sync everyday.

Thanks.

I had the same problem on my iPod touch, I had to restore from backup...it seems to be related to using the 128kbps option when syncing or the new software update, at least in my case.

@packerfan1 - what is the 128kbps option? I looked through the preferences and didn't see anything related to that. If your talking about how your rip albums into itunes then I don't think thats it as I don't used iTunes to copy my CD's. I also don't use iTunes to get the album art either. It might be related to the software update but I would have thought I would see alot more people complaining then.

The same thing does happen to me occasoinally. I correct it by making a small change in either the title or artist info and doing a sync. The correction is then permanently ok.

I do, however, have the same kind of problem with track length. It will be correct in iTunes but wrong in the iPhone. A resync will correct it but then another resync will make it wrong again. This problem has been previously discussed in these forums but I don't believe that there has been a remedy for the problem. Fortunately at least for me it doesn't happen very often.

try emedding the artwork into the music files. Maybe iTunes' database is referring to wrong artwork files...?

I'll uncheck the entire album. Sync it, then recheck it and re-sync. Also, make sure that the information is all correct and uniform.
