Hi.

I am using MB 1.2.3808 and iPod classic (120MB).
After I sync tracks to iPod, almost all album arts in iPod are blackouted.

Any help appreciated.

doing a quick google search it seems this is a common problem and happens randomly on ipods, even when synching with iTunes (sounds like the artwork cache gets corrupted).
To resolve you need to use iTunes
1. Click on your iPod when it's hooked into iTubes under "Devices"
2. Go to the "music" tab
3. uncheck "Display Album Art"
4. Hit apply, this will clear all album artwork
5. Recheck the "Display Album Art" box and your album art will reload and refresh

apparantly can also happen if you update the firmware on the device

Steven, thanks for very fast reply.

However, I cannot use iTunes to re-sync because not all album arts are kept in iTunes.
So, I will endure this problem...

if it becomes a major problem, one suggestion is to do the steps above and then resych all the files using musicbee
