Album artwork not showing up on iPod for some albums only

Hey,

I add songs into my iTunes library, and highlight the ones from the same album, and drag the album cover into the box to attach the album cover to the songs. Repeat for all different albums. Every song in my iTunes library (3000+ songs) has artwork attached to it.

Now...not every song on my iPod will display the artwork...either as the little box on the "Now Playing" Screen, or when you press the centre button a few times to view the artwork as the song is playing.

Here's my question -

Why is this? Are there only a certain number of album artwork files that the iPod can handle, and any song added to the iPod after this number will not show artwork?

Thanks in advance.

I can't tell you why but try this.
In iTunes uncheck the box that says add album artwork..or something like that..
Update your iPod.
Re-Check the box.
Update again.

If the art work is still missing double check those tracks and make sure the artwork is in fact there.

Wow..thanks a lot! It worked!

Atleast...I can only remember 3 or 4 albums for which it didn't work previously and after checking those albums, all artwork is there (I will check in more detail later on, but after checking the first song of each album, the artwork is there).

Thanks a lot

ok i have almost the same problem. but mine is a lil bit different.i check all the tracks of an album, add the album art to all of them and when i check them to see if all of them have the cd cover... they dont.some of them do but not all of them.so i tried applying the album art one by one and still no luck. why is this?
P.S. i tried what u said of unchecking the album art option and rechecking it

Yeah I had something similar and the check/unckeck didn't really help me at first, so what I did is remove the "bad art" songs from the iPod, check/uncheck as said in a previous reply and add the song again to the iPod.

After that the artwork works great for both old and new songs I'm adding every day.
Good Luck.
