    I took music off of limewire and when I turn my phone sideways it has the albums but they are all just blank how can I assign pictures to those items.

    if they are tagged properly, iTunes can fetch the album art.

    highlight them and select "get album artwork" under the advanced menu

    the previous one doesnt always work if you have a pic u want as your thing. click the artwork icon in the bottom left (its a box with a triangle in it), so it shows the artwork pane. select the song you want to add artwork to, make sure the artwork pane says selected song at the top. If it doesnt simply click the top of it to change it. then drag your picture into the artwork pane, and it will be the artwork for that file.

    If it's rarer stuff you can google image search the cover or pull it from Amazon. I occasionally have to do this for stuff which Itunes does not carry.

    I got most of the artwork Thanks. But now most of my songs have an exclamation right by the song and it says cannot locate file is there anyway that I can locate all of the files at once

    Before I got my iPhone I made sure my entire music library was up to snuff with album art and correct tags. I found a nice program called "FixTunes" that was able to take care of 98% of all my music. It's not free, but it works well.

    I used fixtunes but it borked the tags, putting in multiple entries into the various fields.
    On the plus side it did find a lot of artwork, so I used Mp3tag to clean up the tags afterwards
    Great place to find good quality artwork (especially for rarer albums) is http://www.discogs.com/
