Hi. I checked "resize artwork to" and "embed artwork in the music file" in the device settings, but it doesn't work, the size of the artwork is still as big as the original. Is this normal ? Thanks for your help.

What version are you using?  I know Steven fixed that when I observed it.

I'm pretty sure that was before 2.1 was released anyway, but what number does it say if you go to Help > About?

Ok, it works, but it's way too long to synchronize, but I guess it's normal.

Edit: I tried to synchronize without resize covers, but it's the same speed. It was much faster with the previous release. I don't know how to explain this.

I think you're right since now MB rewrites entire files when the change is greater than 4K as Steven explained in the following thread. But it has enormous benefits especially for syncing to a device, requiring much smaller space:

If you're resizing the album covers, MusicBee has to reencode the file, which is probably part of it.  If you have the option to sync as USB instead of MTP, I suggest doing so.  USB is much faster.
