View Full Version : Album Art Gone Awry in iPod

Jul 14, 2006, 10:53 AM
Has anyone noticed that after using your iPod for awhile, the album art goes nuts? I'd be listening to, say a Kayne West album for a few months and the correct album art would show up. Then thereafter, the album art would be changed for the specific disc, like I'd be still listening to Kanye but I'd get the album art for The Thrills.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

It has happened to me too. I would like to know also. Thanks in advance.

Does it also happen in iTunes? If not, have you tried formatting your iPod and replacing the library?

This has been covered before but what you have to do is plug in your ipod and in options deselect show art let it update then select it back and it will reapply the correct album art to the correct songs. It is just a glitch with the updates I guess.

ehh, not worth the trouble of updating 6000+ songs.

thank you for your help anyways.

It only takes minutes, It just realigns the art. It is already is embedded in the song but the way itunes shows it is from a folder. Your basically closing the door on the file and then opening it back up. I have 3 ipod nanos a 60gb 4th gen and a 512 shuffle. It happens every so often and is fixed quickly by what I have told you.
