    hello everyone..
    I have 2 problems with my 16gb 2g ipod touch.

    The "Cover Flow" Problem:

    1- Have a look on the album on the left, it's a duplicate artwork for the current one!

    2- When I scroll to the left, the correct album artwork appears!

    3- Then when scroll left again, the duplicate one come back again! (it's on the right now)

    4- And also see how it appears in the "Albums" section:

    The "Audio Books" Problem:
    When I put the ipod in a vertical way all the files of the audio book I'm listening to appear:

    however, when I put it in a horizontal way, just the file I'm listening to appears!

    I have this problem too... I really want it resolved! At the moment I'm erasing all covers and putting them back on. I bet it won't work though

    After my iTunes library stuffed up and I had to use an older backup, all my album covers were the previews of videos from the Videos app!

    I have had this problem but i fixed it!

    Heres what you do first turn off your ipod then turn it back or restart it.

    This might fix some things

    Go into itunes (on your computer) right click on the first song. Hit get info. Then go to album art tab and make sure that here is only one picture in there. if there are more than one delete the extra. then click on it so its outlined in blue then press apply and go to the next song. Do that to every song that is messed up.

    Thats how i fixed mine!

    That really worked for me !!
    - erased all covers.
    - synced the ipod with no covers.
    - then added the covers again to every song.
    - no duplicate covers.
    - problem solved!

    try it again I hope it'd work for you..
    thanks

    because I have a couple of episodes of "Drake & Josh" in the ipod.
    just do what parklaneyido said, and that will do the trick..

    I think I might give adding artwork to each song individually a go. It's a bit long winded so it better work!!

    ok guys.. YES what I did solved the problem, but it's back again!

    When I finished removing then adding the pics, everything was fine until I added pics to every audio book I have, and found out that the Album section was in a big mess regarding pics... also most of the icons (previews) for the podcasts turned into a black square. :S

    So either it's just me, and the files I use. (though I doubt it) or maybe it's a problem with all of the ipods, and if that so I hope Apple would include something about it in the next update.

    This usually happens when the artwork in iTunes is corrupted...

    There are several ways to add the artwork to iTunes, how are you adding them? Also, is your version of iTunes for Mac or a PC?

    it's iTunes for PC, version 8.0.2.

    the way I add artwork is:
    - right click on a song.
    - choose "Get Info"
    - then "Artwork" tab.
    - click on "Add" then choose a pic.
    - then "Ok"
