Hi. I went the the FAQ and this exact problem was there. I have followed the instructions and made sure it is a iTunes library xml and not file based. I have synced and still the BMP is not reflected until I play the song. Have I done something wrong or is there still a setting I need to adjust? There was no further information what to do if the problem persists. I'm running Windows 10 on a PC

    Hi David,

    Synchronization in beaTunes is the process that synchronizes beaTunes' database with what's in iTunes, not the other way around.

    The only way to fix this, is to either convince iTunes to re-read all your audio files or to analyze them again in beaTunes, but with "force overwrite" turned on.

    If you want to try the latter, open the beaTunes' general preferences, turn force overwriting on and analyze your files again. Make sure to ask beaTunes to replace the existing values.
