    This problem has carried over from firmware 2.1. My album art is all messed up. I'll add album on one album but it will show up on two albums, or album are won't show at all. Weird random glitches like that. I also manually manage my music. Any ideas on how I can fix these problems so cover flow works properly?

    what liek splits the album up?

    i had that, if you select the album and edit the infomation when all the song are selected, it should fix it.

    some time if you have an extra space or a capital letter and the opposite on another song, it kinda mixes up the album into 2 parts or w/e.

    Pretty much. I think I may have found a solution to this but I'm not 100% sure yet, I gotta do more testing.

    Basically what I do it make a folder with all the songs and a picture of the album art in it and then I drag and drop the songs to my ipod. So far it seems to be working.

    I dont have 2.2 yet, but on my 2.1 it seems to be only on user-added art. iTunes doesnt seem to like items that arent Apple related.

    Okay, I've 100% solved this problem. You need MP3Tag v2.42. You need to tag the art directly to all the music. This has so far solved it for me.
