    I find that when I have to manually add album artwork, it shows it on the album display in iTunes, but not each individual song when I play them on my iPod. Now this gets very tedious to find all of them, is there anyway I can just make it set to all songs listed in the album?

    In iTunes, use ctrl+c to select all the song in the album. Right click, and where the album art box is, paste the image there. It should add it to all the songs selected.

    Yea, that's a lot of work lol. When I buy certain albums, they split up, and upon fixing them, iTunes won't get the correct album artwork.

    I was hoping to just like right click on album and make them all have the same. The Album in the album view is showing the artwork, but sometimes not each individual song.

    That usually means that one song in the album has album art, but the others don't.

    Oh, by the way, I totally mucked up that thing I said earlier. I meant to say hold ctrl and select all the songs on the album. Than right click, and choose Get Info. Then paste the album art to the empty box.

    It's late, and I'm on my iPad... So yeah.

    If you got the album art via iTunes, select them all, then right click and choose Get Album Artwork.

    And now, albums that HAVE artwork for all songs, show up as no artwork in cover flow

    I am sick of problems with Cover Flow and Album Covers! C'mon Apple, fix our problems! My album covers are always mixed up, sometimes I have none! Grr~!

    Sorry I couldn't help. I've had trouble with my cover art in the past, and since I'm a little OCD about these things, ALL my albums have to have correct cover art and everything.

    One time, my album art was 100% correct (which took FOREVER) in iTunes, and then when I synced, all the cover art on my iPad was incorrect. I had to remove all the songs from my iPad and re-sync, which took forever.

    Another one that happened was that the album art began splicing with other album art. I'd have half a Creedence Clearwater Revival album art with half of the Armageddon soundtrack art. That really drove me crazy.

    It's definitely one of those things that they need to work on.
