    I have transferred loads of cd's onto my pc then to the ipod but I cannot get any artwork to show up.

    The art work will only show up on the PC (i.e Not on the i pod - unless you get a i pod Photo).
    To link a piece of artwork with said album - go into iTunes, highlight the album (every track) then right click and choose 'get info'. Within the screen that now appears - tick at the side of the artwork box and then double click within the large artwork box, this will then ask you for a link to the artwork which you will have stored on your hard drive. :clap: Job done

    When it comes up with all your Photos you just choose the one which goes with the album (Would be ideal to store them all in Artwork folder I suppose) Double click on the picture - then OK.

    Now if back in the normal iTunes page and go into the Library, whenever you click on that album the artwork should appear in the bottom left had corner.

    If you have a box but it says 'Now Playing' click on the header and it will change to 'Selected Song' - showing you 'hopefully' the artwork. This box can be dragged and dropped to a larger size if required

    No No No No..........

    Artwork can easily be got without having to revert to getting the old box brownie out.
    Go to Amazon search for the Album your looking for click on the Artwork image (it normally becomes slightly larger) then right click and choose the sixth one down ' Save picture as....' call it somethng and stick it in your recently created :smashin: new 'ARTWORK' folder.

    Granted takes somw time if you have 200-300 albums to do.......just depends how much you want to see the artwork ??

    ... or just drag and drop the image onto the Artwork area of iTunes (making sure that you've selected all tracks for the album first).

    There was an iTunes plugin, called FetchArt, that would do it for your (using the Amazon web services interface), but that's not available anymore. I think JewelCase does the same, but only on an 'as-you-listen' basis, and I think that's Mac only.

    Cheers, Carl.

    Does the artwork automatically get resized when the file is one the ipod photo?, and does the actual image file need to be moved over to the ipod as well?.

    I'm not sure about the first question. As to the second, the image is stored within the track file so you don't have to synch them separately. This does enlarge the track file size a little though.
