    for some reason whenever I select album artwork as the screensaver in tiger on my macbook, the system pref. quits. When i try to open the pref. again it just quits.

    The only way to solve it is to find a specific file in the library.

    Why does it do this?!

    I get the same error. It quits then asks me to send a report to Apple.

    I'm on 10.4.7 intel / using artwork downloaded automatically using the new feature in itunes 7. Maybe it doesn't like it unless it's manually downloaded?

    Yes someone please help with this problem!!!

    I have heard solutions involving deleting com.apple.screensaver.plist from Library/Preferences... but for whatever reason, I don't even have this .plist file... if anyone has figured out this album art screensaver problem a response would be appriciated!

    Thanks!

    Ah! fixed my own problem.

    Here is the solution:

    Go to Spotlight, and begin typing "itunesartw.." until the .plist file(s) comes up. Delete whatever .plist file is there.

    Reopen SysPref, and set the iTunes artwork how you would like, however, 2 rows does not work.

    Hopefully this solves the problem I know a lot of people are having.

    It's a very moody app, but nice when it works.
