iTunes Cover Flow issue on Mac

Trying to figure out why when I go into Cover Flow view this is what I get.

Anyone have any ideas? Has anyone seen this before?

Please see the link to the screenshot --->

I think I saw a post like this a few months ago. Video driver was the problem if I remember properly.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

For pc or Mac? I m running a MBP with OSX, would love to find a fix for this

Do your remember if it was a driver refresh or resolution change? Its worked fine for a long time.

Thanks

I can switch to the high resolution chip-set on my MBP and no difference, its definitely in the application. I am guessing was a combo of a keystroke and mouse adjustment, but there is no way to set it back. I even tried to uninstall and reinstall the application, to no avail.

I was checking the Apple Support forums, and I found a link that suggests that you will need to rebuild your library (iTunes Library file) from the iTunes Library.xml file Apple - Support - Discussions - Itunes Cover Flow Problem - Windows 7 ...

I found the same thing, Thanks for the info. I did export my Library to an xml file, deleted my library file and then relaunched ITunes and imported the XML back in, it did restore the Cover Flow in the Music setting.
