    So I bought a couple CD's and uploaded them to iTunes.
    But when I click on it to add the artwork it looks like it starts loading the artwork up but doesn't add it to the songs?

    Is there a fix for this?

    I don't exactly know how it works but i do it like this;

    I drag the image to the desktop from the browser. (after locating in google image)
    Highlight all the songs on the album. (shift/down/up)
    Command + I
    Click info tab up top of Info window.
    Click blank artwork box in bottom right of window. (you need to do this after 10.3 itunes)
    Drag image file from desktop to highlighted artwork box.

    This will put the image in the file metadata i think.

    You can also drag to the artwork box in the bottom left of itunes. I do both. I think this loads the artwork into the Artwork file, rather than the metadata. Artwork from the itunes store goes there. I drag artwork downloaded from the itunes store from this bottom left hand artwork box and drag it to the desktop to load into the info panel so it is embedded in the metadata.

    EDIT- If the artwork is not available at the itunes store there would normally be a pop up box saying so, however it could have been disabled by the tick box..

    First right click on album (with blank art work) then clear artwork
    second Right click again, this time get info, a dialog box will appear. Drag art work to open artwork window.
    Then click OK and your done.
