    First time user, so please forgive me if i get this wrong; desperately need help.

    After upgrading to the most latest i Tunes version, the cover flow view has gone all screwy, with no covers appearing, just the list of songs, which covers up the volume control etc at the top.

    I have tried resizing but all it what's to do is move songs; I have uninstalled and reinstalled latest version, uninstalled and installed older version and even reinstalled OSX. NOTHING works.

    I have attached screen shot, PLEASE PLEASE HELP, it's driving me nuts!

    hey, hold alt+cmd and open iTunes, it should display a window informing you that iTunes is running in Safe Mode, if it works okay then it is the Plug-In you have running with iTunes :)

    Hi I have exactly the same issue here. Updated itunes to 9.1.1 and get the same loss of cover flow and the tunes list covering the controls at the top. I too have Tuneup and wonder if that could be part of the problem. Interestingly cover flow works fine for movies and tv shows?

    Just a thought... Try changing your screen resolution to something else and then change it back to where you currently keep it set.

    I had the same problem: TunesUp created it I guess.
    The problem is the "iTunes Library" file located in Music/iTunes in your home folder.

    Here's what I did:

    0. Delete TunesUp
    1. Back up "iTunes Library" and "iTunes Music Library.xml"
    2. Delete "iTunes Library"
    3. Open iTunes (there will be no library)
    4. Import the backed up "iTunes Music Library.xml" (File>Library>Import Playlist

    For now, it seems to be OK. iTunes had to reimport all the cover art from the net. I also had to delete the playlists that were doubled.

    Hi Julienlv

    Question did you reinstall Tune-up?

    No, I didn't reinstalled tune-up. I figured out that if it was causing problems, I should not use it. Some open-source program (picard) can do the same, with a little more effort (and no cover art).
