    You have to make sure the art is assigned to every singe song and not just some of the tracks. iTunes will make it look like every song has the art applied in CoverFlow, but if you do Get Info and look under the Artwork tab, you may find certain tracks are missing art. If this is the case, the iPhone will not display art for those tracks.

    So if I have 20 songs in my library I need to have album art for ALL 20 songs? That doesnt make sense...The ones I cant find anything for , doesnt it just leave that album blank (or black)? There are a couple no name bands that I can not even find any jpeg to use for thier cover art.

    Well, to use your example of 20 songs, if you (hypothetically) have 4 albums with 5 songs each, each song in each album needs to have art assigned if you want to see the album art for any one of those albums/songs in the Album List view or the CoverFlow view. But if you have 20 different songs from 20 different albums, and some of those songs have art, and others are blank, then the songs that have art should display the art (since they are the only songs present from their respective albums), and the songs that have no art will be blank.

    He means per album. Make sure every song on the album has the same cover art attached.
