    I had 100% album art on my touch. It's STILL 100% when viewed via coverflow but for some reason when I browse by album in portrait mode, some albums have a black square (Not the no art icon) and then when I play the album, the art appears in the now playing screen!

    Has anybody come accross this before?

    I suspect it may have something to do with adding album art directly to the touch instead of iTunes then synching.

    I have this problem too. As of now I have two musical squares instead of album artwork. I barely sync my iPod with my computer. I buy all songs off of my itouch iTunes. The only time I really sync is for an update or restore.

    its because you don't have album art for EVERY SONG in that particular album, only a few.
    every song needs the album artwork.
    you can right click on a song, click get info, and under the album art tab, you can see if it has the cover or not.

    Sorry, this isn't the case. I have art on every single song. I am completely anally retentive about my album art. It's all at least 300x300 hi res too.
