AHHHH!!

Okay, so my quandary isn't as serious as the title would have you believe...but i do have a question that's been bugging me for awhile. I'm going to be upgrading to the ipod photo soon and I was wondering, would the album icon show up on the ipod photo if the music is from a burned CD that was burned from the original CD? Also, does anyone know of any good cases for a 60 gb ipod? Thanks, guys!

The artwork will show up if you have the artwork in iTunes. IE you download the cover art from Wal-Mart and drag it to the empty box.

Or you can use a program that will do it for you. theres a bunch on versiontracker....

I use Clutter and love it, others on MR also recommended it to me. There are other similar apps.

So you get the cover art for free from these programs? Can someone please explain how the program works?

I'm pretty sure that the VersionTracker page describes it... essentially, you start the app while playing a song in iTunes. This app will then go to Amazon and find the cover art, then you copy it into iTunes. Poof.

I found just using Amazon was easier for me. Although, starting up a new library is considerably easier by letting Clutter run overtop of iTunes.

Select the songs in the album you want to add the art to, click the album art button in iTunes (bottom left row of buttons 4th from the left), make sure the little box that pops up says "selected song" to change to this click on the title of the box, drag your picture into that box.

Now clutter, as previously mentioned, will do all this for you.

Dude man try fetchart, even just reading how clutter works makes me think fetchart would be much easier. It runs once and automatically puts album art with every single song unless you do not have the right title, or album name.

I found that if Amazon.com doesn't have the artwork, Amazon.co.uk does ... except for classical musical ... with so many versions available, unless you have the original CD box it's next to impossible to know which version of the music you have.

Hm...if you use Cluster, u can just click on the "Copy Artwork to iTunes and it'll automatically do that.I assume that you're playing the song u want the artwork...i personally find it easier to play the song and let cluster search for the artwork...you can do it without playing the song actually...and btw, i if you don't really have a big library and one something easy, you can try out FetchArt, it basically gets the whole list of the song in your itunes and it downloads all the artwork for all the songs in your iTunes.The album artworks are downloaded from Amazon.com(i'm not sure if it downloads from amazon.uk).So you might not get all of the artworks.I've use it once and find it okay, it's jus that i don't like it b'cos everytime, it just downloads the whole list, i'm not sure if there's any way to tweak it or whatsoever.But if you have a small library and the songs that you have are pretty popular and mostly available in amazon.com, i'll say give it a shot.
Okay about doing it manually, in iTunes i usually select the song i want to get the artwork, then i hit command + "i" or u can click File>>Get Info, it works either way, then click the tab Artwork. Next, i open a browser and search in Walmart for the album artwork that i want, and drag the picture into the picture into the box (located in the Artwork Tab that u just selected in iTunes).
Hope this helps...

Well, until I get my Mac (grrrr, about a week later than planned thanks to fedex), I can't use any of those programs, so I've just been copying and pasting from amazon. Does anyone know how to "undo" album art? I accidently pasted the wrong album art and when I try to paste the correct one on top, nothing happens. Thanks guys.

Try that out if you're not running a Mac. It's been known to be a tiny bit buggy, but if you're patient it should be sufficient

Click the song you want to get rid of the artwork for, get info, click artwork, click on the picture, click delete.

I assume you can also do this for a group of songs.
