    I found that if you right click on your movie file with the missing artwork and select get info/options/change media kind to home video/OK, your movie will be moved into Home Video section and your artwork will magically appear. To move your movie back to the movies section along with all your other movies, change "media kind" back to movie.

    This is what my library looked like before I changed the media kind to "Home Video" and back to "movie".

    Now this is just for movies with missing artwork. I still have not found a way to fix my missing album art for many of my music CD's.

    If anybody can suggest a way to get my music album art back, I would be in your debt.

    When I first downloaded '11' I had a few album covers missing. Not many, maybe ten or 15 of about 450 albums. I went to each album and clicked the first song and then checked the details (cmd-I), nothing. But when I checked the next song it was there. So I just copied it to the missing one, checked the rest of the songs on the album to be sure, and it was okay after that.

    It was a bit tedious, but like I say there weren't that many so it was worth it to me to check them out. Funny thing is that in the last iTunes I had one album that would never show the artwork for some reason, just that one. The pics were there when I opened the item detail on each song, but it never showed in the main library section. After downloading '11', that album cover now shows up every time. Go figure... :confused:

    Dude! This CMS-I trick worked! All I did is select the first song in the album, CMD-I, then selected album art and hit OK. The album are magically appeared. Cool!! I am a happy man.
