    Most albums I have do not have the artwork for them. So when I go into cover flow, you see a bunch of black covers. Does anyone know how to get album artwork for those black covers?
    Thanks. :)

    You can drag the pictures onto the song in iTunes if you want to do it manually. Have a look at the program iArt, it does it automatically for your songs.

    Try using a website such as www.coverhunt.com. I don't have a mac so I'll describe how you'd do it on a PC, I'm sure you'll figure it out.

    Copy the picture, then highlight all of the songs in that album in your iTunes library, right click and select get info, then paste the picture in the album art box. Simple as.

    There are tonnes of sites that offer an album art 'search' so I'd look around for the best, or just use google.

    Thanks!
    Sorry to bother anyone else, but . .

    When I enter iTunes and my iPod is connected and stuff, when I click my iPod thing and I see a list of music, like every other iPod w/ music shows you. BUt my music, I can't click on it and I can't listen to it or anything.

    I don't understand. Are you saying you can't click ANY music in iTunes or you just can't click the music under the iPod menu?

    Oh, and I added album art manually. I just looked up the album names either on iTunes or Google than got the album covers from Google Images. If you have the exact right album name, than just go to iTunes > Advanced > Get Album Artwork

    restart computer.

    restart ipod touch.

    trash itunes prefs but do not hook up ipod until you reset preferences.

    check connections.

    use different usb.

    you are not really saying what you tried so i am giving you suggestions.

    Do you think it could be that I haven't registered?

    Try clicking on your library or your playlists to modify songs.
