    I used to have this option on the main iPod options page, but as of iTunes 9 it seems to have vanished. Lately I'm running low on iPod space and would like to disable the album art. But I can't find a way to turn it off. I don't want to delete the art from iTunes itself, as I like having it on the computer...

    Help would be appreciated. I have a 8GB Nano 3G if that helps anything. Mac OS 10.6, iTunes 9

    I'm having this same problem, I've got no solution but hopefully someone does.

    Seems kind of foolish that Apple decided to remove the option from the newest iTunes...

    I doubt that disabling album art would save sufficient space. It barely takes any space at all. Maybe without it, you could fit another few songs (1-3).

    Not really, the album art fills up approximately 100 MB on my iPod Nano.

    This really is ridiculous. I have an 8GB as well, and I used to be able to have almost 2000 songs on there, but now I have 1350 or so.

    Alternatively, if there is no option to disable the artwork transfer, can we revert to an older version of iTunes?
