My album art is no longer showing up on my iPod since my most recent snyc! Did I change a setting or something by accident? Anyone who has a solution, please let me know how to fix this. Thanks so much.

Check your settings, you might have accidentally told your iPod not to show Album Art. It happened to me before.

Navigate to: iTunes > Preferences > iPod > General (I think, I'm not connected so I can't check for sure) and there should be a box towards the bottom of the window that says display album art.

Well, I have some that do and some that don't. Some of the ones that don't were purches from the iTMS. I have no idea why. Not a big deal but I do wonder why.

Thanks...I'll check that as soon as I get home from work. I don't know how it could have happened thought???

Hopefully that is the solution.

All of my music has album art and previously there wasn't any problem. Only since the most recent sync, none of the art is showing up??

Hopefully BenjaminDaines solution is correct.

I checked this out and the box is checked where it says to display album art:confused:

Anyone else???
Please help.
Thanks

I just saw this on a similar post:

This has been covered before but here it goes, go into itunes preferences and disable artwork on ipod then update, when it done(only takes a minute) go back in and choose display artwork it will re sync the art. It happens on all high used ipods after a while. Just a quirk. Has to do with the art directory or something.
I'm going to try it and I will let you know how it worked.

I've actually had the problem where art from a one album shows up when a song from a completely different album and/or artist is playing. I still can't find out how to fix it. Glad you fixed your problem though.
