Album Art Problems on iPhone

I just sync'd over to my new iPhone. All of my music has album art in iTunes on my PC, but when it all went over to my phone, some albums randomly are not showing up? I checked one album that was present on my computer and I infact had the actual album art saved on my PC [it wasn't looked up on iTunes].

What gives?

Same thing happened to me.

Go into your iPhone's music in iTunes
Select all tracks from an album missing the artwork on the phone
Right click / Get Info
Paste the artwork into the little artwork box.

After doing that, the artwork shows up on the phone now.
It's still odd you have to do this in the first place, though.

No no, go directly to your iPhone's music in the iTunes sidebar.

Then right click / get info on the tracks that are actually on the iPhone that are missing the artwork.

Make sure your album art is applied to each song in every album....otherwise it will only show up on the tracks you selected. This is how I did it with all my mp3's at least.

Do you have your iPhone set so you can manually manage music?
You may need to do that first if you're set to automatic syncing right now for music.

Then you should be able to click on the music library of your iPhone in the sidebar

Here's an image showing the music tab I'm talking about directly under my iPhone's name.

Here's another odd little iTunes problem along these lines. I can have one cover art on my Mac and when I sync music it'll load different cover art on the phone. How does that happen?

I'm having the same issue with incorrect album art on the iPhone. It's really weird! On my computer (Mac, running Tiger), the album art is fine. On the phone, after a synch or two, it starts coming up with seemingly random artwork for various albums and my podcasts. Weirder still, it'll be the same wrong artwork across an entire album. And it won't be the SAME wrong artwork after I synch again.

Anyone know where this is coming from?

Wrong artwork

I started having the same problems on my iPod Touch.
I had a playlist with incorrect album artwork for the first song.
I unchecked the playlist, synced the Touch, rechecked the playlist, then resynced the Touch.
The first song now shows the right album artwork, but the last one shows the wrong album artwork.

I'm getting sick and tired of these m************ bugs in my m************ phone.

Is it iTunes or iPod?!

I started having album artwork problem when I got my iPhone 4 and upgraded iTunes and upgraded iOS... all at the release of the iOS and iTunes version right after the iPhone 4's release.

Here's the problem exactly. Any single song that is altered in any way, (song name, start time, artist name) causes a huge fumblef*** with how it's displayed on the iPhone after a sync.

Either the artwork will be blank, (default for missing artwork) or it will be from another random album!

I apply artwork to every single individual album in iTunes and still...

Another issue I'm having is that song start times are just as ****** **********! I have about 20 songs that have custom start times in iTunes and so work on the iPhone. However, for some reason, the start times apply in weird ways to almost every song!

Somehow Apple's monkehs has borked their means of identifying songs and is causing a conflict with how settings and information applies to them.

Is there any word if the new iTunes and new iOS addresses this at all? Or shall I continue testing Steve's junk filter... <.<

I had this problem on the iphone.

There was alway one album that was appearing the most... so I deleted it in itunes, re-synced and checked out the phone.

Then another piece of album art started appearing throughout the library on the iphone.
So I deleted that artwork in itunes.

Then another album artwork started appearing.
So I deleted that artwork in itunes.

After a few more deletes in itunes artwork..... the problem went away for now.

Finally found a solution! It has to do with corrupted files on your iPhone...
