    Just got it yesterday. Is there some type of setting that is off?

    That's strange. When your in the Music app, all you have to do is turn your iPod touch into landscape mode and it should automatically go into CoverFlow. Try turning it to landcape mode while in Safari, and if it still doesn't work, then I would suggest taking it to the Apple Store.

    the accelerometer really only works if the iPod is held in a vertical position in your hand to start with. if you are holding your iPod with your palm up, in more of a flat, parallel to the ground position, it can't detect when you switch from portrait to landscape to invoke coverflow. so be sure your iPod is upright before turning it. hope that helps?

    Yes, it is does. Thank you. Now after fooling with it for awhile it only turns when I do it perfectly. I'm disabled so I had to fiddle with it for awhile but it does turn.
