iPod - No album artwork

Hey guys, I recently got album artwork for all of my music in my iTunes library. I did this by just going to find the cd on Amazon and dragging the image into iTunes. I plugged in my iPod and updated all of the music. I even checked the box that says Display Album Artwork on iPod under the Music tab, but even after re-syncing it and power cycling my iPod, it still doesn't display the album artwork.

Is there a setting on the iPod itself that I have to enable also?

Thanks for the help!

Does the album art appear in iTunes?

Yes, all the album art appears in the bottom left corner and comes up in the Cover Flow view.

Curious. When you have your iPod connected to your computer and your iTunes is running, the colored bar at the bottom of the iPod info screen shows space usage for music and album art, each with a different color. Do you see any disk usage for album art?

Also, I don't have my iPod with me but is there a setting in the iPod itself for displaying album art? I know there's one in iTunes and it looks you have that one set properly so supposedly the art is on the iPhone but maybe you still need to tell the iPod to display it.

I thought I looked everywhere in the Settings and I couldn't find it. Also I'm pretty sure there was no disk usage for album art. This is just getting too frustrating!

Sounds like the art's not making it to the iPod. I'd try resyncing, maybe deleting an album art, syncing, then adding it again and syncing.

Maybe it doesn't like the amazon art. I have a nano so I don't sync art.

Hmm..I just plugged it back into the computer. I do have 42.2Mb of Other that is colored orange. All my music is in blue and the free space is in white.

I got it, apparently it didn't work the first few times, but I kept checking/unchecking "show album art" in the Preferences and if finally put it all on there.

Ohhh, right! I didn't suggest that because it's sooo obvious. Everyone knows that!!!
