    This happened to me to, the problem is not the artwork but the ipod.
    Restore iPod and they'll go back to normal.

    Then i can't help you there.
    But if you really hate the black cover, then sync with iTunes and restore.

    So I kind of figured out what is happening here. I decided to delete all my music and use the Music Library for testing. I usually just copy over my MP3's right to the ipod in itunes. I then also find and copy over all my own cover art. I listen to a lot of rare metal, so most of the time, itunes doesn't have the covers anyway.

    So I copied my music into the Library and copied over the cover art and then sync'ed it up. Every single album displayed just fine. I then decided to copy over one album right to the ipod and then imported the coverart. I then went into the coverflow on the ipod and almost every album was messed up somehow. Most of them wouldn't even show up at all and were just black. Some you could see as you went across, but when you got right on the Album, they were black.

    I also tested this from a totally restored (non-jb) 2.1 version of the firmware downloaded straight from itunes. Same thing.

    So it looks like coping your own music straight to the Ipod, 95% of the time messes up the cover art. I am hoping this will be fixed in the next release.
