A while ago I had a crash which wiped all the music synchronisation settings from my phone.
Until that point I'd synced based on selecting albums and artists in iTunes when the phone was plugged in, however having lost all that I decided it would be better to create playlists and sync those - that way if it happened again I just have to select half a dozen playlists to sync and I'm done.
The issue I have is that this doesn't seem to synchronise album art in most cases. The album art is there in iTunes but not on the phone.
If I select an artist to sync individually the artwork will appear (and will stay even when the artist selection is removed so it's just the playlist keeping the track on the phone), but without that it won't.
EDIT: Selecting the album individually doesn't seem to push the art work across so that may be a red herring. It's all feeling rather random.
Any thoughts on what I can do to force the artwork on to the phone without having to individually select every artist / album / track?
