    Hello, I have a problem with the coverflow at my iPod Touch 2G. It's just some days old, I have the newest firmware (2.2.1) on it and the newest iTunes.

    Yesterday I have filled it with some albums, now I have the problem that the covers are not displayed correctly. All albums are with mp3s from my desktop PC, I saved the cover via Tag in the mp3 file, I used MP3Tag to do it.

    The problem is that some covers are displayed black in the albums list and in the coverflow, too. Not all at the same way, that is the funny thing. Some are only black if you watch them from the side in the coverflow, when you select them you can see the cover. Some are completly black, but they don't have the "no cover sign".

    I'm sorry for my bad english skills, I made a video so you can understand better:

    Somebody knows how to solve my problem? Greetz, sMiNt

    Just add the covers using iTunes and sync. No need for MP3Tag. I always do it manually (downloading the covers, adding the image to the iTunes) and I never had any problems. I use these websites to download high-quality covers.

    Remember: iTunes is now your god.

    You have to delete the songs from your ipod, retag them as suggested, then put them back on.

    It's the only way.

    Also, turn off coverflow. It's garbage.
