    My iPod isnt jailbroken yet...

    My album art is only showing for certain songs - when i'm in coverflow, the album art is there, but say I play song 3, the album art will dissapear from now playing, but will be there for song 4.

    Anyone know why?

    I searched "album art" but it said the search criteria <art> was too short... stupid search

    Try pasting the album art on each song in iTunes. Sometimes it doesn't copy to all songs.

    Another thing is to select all the Songs and click on the "Get Album Artwork" in iTunes and it will pick up and set all the art for you.

    it only does it on the songs that have custom album art (as opposed to album art found by itunes) so it means i have to put a custom picture on every song... gonna take years.....

    ah well. not much i can do

    i have about 1500 songs and i was excited to get the touch, and since it had cover flow, i wanted album art for all my songs, and i did it! i had to searcr on google and drag it to itunes for all songs! D; it took me about 6 days on and off but now it looks awsome on cover flow

    your mp3s need to have album info, title, and all that other stuff for it to pull artwork from itunes.
    if it's missing that, it's going to have some trouble getting the artwork by itself.
    when you drag an mp3 into itunes, right click and get info
    a few things need to be filled out properly to get the artwork automatically
    go to itunes, do a search for the same mp3, right click, get info for that
    match it and it shoudl pull the artwork off on it's own

    I did all my songs manually, just for the touch's coverflow.

    I added most of the coverflow pictures myself as well, as a lot of my stuff isn't on iTunes Music Store. It still isn't showing up heh.

    I may try rejigging (that's a technical term) the album data.
