I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 and used Banshee to sync my music from my iPod onto my computer. When I turned my iPod back on (it's jailbroken) the album artwork was messed up and placed to incorrect albums, but on Banshee the album artwork is placed to each correct album.

How do I fix this?

I have a feeling it's because your iPod is jailbroken. I plugged mine in and it didn't cause any issues even remotely close to that... I will certainly do a search for you though... –  zkriesse Jul 13 '11 at 23:35

It happened to mine as well, and it's not jailbroken. Here's a list of what I actually did 1. In iPod go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content and Settings. Obviously this option will erase all your music, videos and apps in your iPod. 2. Wait for it to finish. 3. Sync your iPod again with Banshee. There shouldn't be any problem with the album art in iPod after that.

Take note that this method might not fix your album art problem 100%. While it did work, but at times, the album art might start go awry again. This is especially obvious if you have a large library.
