    The other night, I used the "Get Album Artwork" feature in iTunes and everything worked out fine. The artwork displayed flawlessly in iTunes. So, then I synced my iPod and afterward decided to test it out. I just put in on Shuffle Songs and found that the majority of the artwork just shows up as solid black squares on the iPod. After looking into it some more, I realized that any artists before G in the alphabet displayed correctly, but somewhere after that, they just show as black squares. I thought maybe it was due to space, but it says I still have like 350 MB of free space on the iPod. I am using Windows XP, by the way. Anyone know what the problem is?

    The file on your iPod that handles art might be corrupt. Try this:

    -Dock iPod, turn OFF the "Add artwork to iPod" option and sync.
    -Eject iPod
    -Dock iPod again, re-enable "Add artwork to iPod" and re-sync.

    This will copy all fresh copies of the art & the artwork database file to iPod.
