    Anyone's iPhone doing this?:

    Day X - iPhone just been restored. All fine.
    Day X - rip a CD to iTunes - sync to iPhone - all fine.
    Day Y - rip another CD to iTunes
    Day Y - sync iPhone - Day X artwork turns into a black screen. Day Y artwork fine.
    Day Z - rip another CD to iTunes. Day X and Day Y artwork now a black screen Day Z artwork fine.
    Day Q - perform another restore - all artwork reappears upon syncing to iTunes.

    and repeat, and repeat.

    It's not exactly life threatening but it annoying.
    Any idea how to fix it?

    So...your phone solves for X? Or is it Y? Both?! :eek:

    No, my phone cannot do algebra. But there probably is an app for that. :p

    OK - I'll try and make it easier to understand.

    17 August - iPhone just been restored. All fine.
    17 August - rip a CD to iTunes - sync to iPhone - all fine.
    18 August - rip another CD to iTunes
    18 August - sync iPhone - artwork from songs loaded on 17 August turns into a black screen. Artwork loaded on 18 August is fine.
    19 August - rip another CD to iTunes. Artwork loaded on both 17 and 18 August now a black screen. Artwork loaded on 19 August fine.
    20 august - perform another restore - all artwork reappears upon syncing to iTunes.

    This cycle then continues over and over again.

    So, I'm asking if this problem of artwork turning to a black screen in the pattern above is happening to anyone else and if there is anything I can do to stop it from happening.

    Well, I've looked for how to solve your issue, and one way may be to just delete all your music from your iPhone before you sync. See post #17 of this thread:

    Other than that IDK. I haven't experienced the problem.
