    There is the toolbar going across the middle of the screen, right? First off, to switch what tag you are dealing with (v1 or v2) there are buttons about 1/3 of the way across the screen (starting on the left). They are labeled ID3V2 and ID3V1 or something to that effect.

    To sync the tags is a different story. There is from what I remember, a small blue icon on that same toolbar, but now 2/3 across from the left. You click on that (it looks like a disfigured phallic symbol of some sort, but this is purely from memory) and a dialog box pops up asking you what direction you want to go (v2->v1 or vice versa) and whether or not to overwrite existing tag fields.

    P.S. If you don't have any files selected in the bottom right window you'll have most buttons grayed out. Learn how to select files (use right click on folders in that pane, but ALSO use the buttons furthest left on that toolbar...it makes things go a LOT quicker)

    Hope that helps...

    edit: BTW I'm using 2.1.7.4, not 3.0RCx

    Hey osirisdon

    Thanks for the link, gotch covered is sweet. Little rough around the edges and the text is super small, started getting a head ache after a few min of stareing at it. Had to change my monitor res to 1024 so i could read it comfortable. But i downloaded album art for all my mp3's (35GB +) last night. Took about 4 hours of intense mouse clicking

    Thanks again

    Hah, ******* crazy. I just started coding a program to do this day before yesterday, I've got it working so I can enter in the artist name and album title, and itll return the cover art... I just need to add in the directory parsing crap, and it's good to go. I'm going to make it so you give it a C:\Directory and itll check every folder, and if it doesn't contain any jpg's check to see if theres cover art available for it, and download it to the folder if so. Lemme know if you want me to upload it here when im done..

    PS: I'm making it up, to integrate into my car software 'Fusion-One'

    I'd like the option to read the artist-album for EACH MP3, search and find the album cover, then ATTACH it to the id3v2 tag. That would be quite nice.

    Well I just released a configuration utitlity for my program that uses the id3lib that parses the id3 tag, and extracts the album art and places it in the directory with the songs. Wouldn't be too hard to do this the other way around, it is just the "searching" for the album art... I need to look into this.
