Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Updating the tags on an iPod?

Ah.  OK.  The tags I've been changing are images -- adding cover art -- so it looks like I'll have to delete and re-transfer.

Thank you,

Rhythmbox has some pretty crude duplicate detection when it transfers
files to an iPod (or any portable media player). It checks if the
track title/artist/album (and now track number) and if they are the
same, it decides the track is a duplicate and doesn't transfer it. I
guess this means you can just drag and drop everything and rhythmbox
will just transfer the songs whose tags you have modified.

Hope that helps,
