    so if I back up my own CDs, or like to listen to a lot of bootlegs from concerts.....how should I go about adding my own album art so the screen isnt blank most of the time?

    I found that i can highlight everything "get info" and set album art that way but it looks like it then goes through and adds the image size to each mp3 which adds up after a while. I also read that itunes stores album art in a DB and references the image file from the mp3 so as to be more efficient. Is there anyway I can do this DB thing with my own album art on non itunesstore mp3s? Is there any better method I should be using?

    Thanks

    with your own mp3's the only way to add album art that works on ipod's is to go into itunes and get the song(s) and "get info" and add album art that way. And its no more efficient to have artwork in a separted DB than embedded in the music file. You just have to use iTunes' "Get Info"
