    the most common reason it cannot get artwork is because the mp3 file is missing crucial information.


    go into any album or song and select *get info*. from there, choose the *info* tab and make sure the song name, artist name and album are all there and properly spelled.


    those three fields are the most essential. the rest can be filled in but if there is a mistake on some of the other fields itunes might not recognise the song (and hence the artwork for it) even if the three essential fields are correct.

    Happens to me. I go to the Internet and find the album cover myself and then add it manually. iTunes always does it. Not worth bothering with it.

    Find the appropriate album pic on the Internet. Go into iTunes and then your music library and click on the song without artwork. Click get info and you can then add the album pic from your computer :)
    I always do this for missing artwork.
