Question about Apple Audio Players & Recorders

Cover Art and iPod not agreeing with each other!

My iPod Classic 160gb seems to be selecting random cover art for songs it plays. I know I sync'ed the songs onto the iPod (using iTunes) with the cover art on them, but when I play it on the iPod, the cover art is either different, or is missing. Are there any patched I can download, or anything I can do? Or is it just ''one of those iPod things''?

Hi there,
the problem comes from the tags attached to your media files.
You must tag your files with the appropriate cover art for them to appear correctly. There is an application available for free that can do this for you:
http://www.mp3tag.de/en/download.html

Once you have installed it, run the program.
In the program, click File/Change Directory
Select the folder in which you've got your music files and it will open the folder up for analysis.
Preferably, you should group your songs by album to make the process easier for you.
You select the songs from the list( for multiple songs, hold Ctrl while selecting) and then click on Tag Sources/Amazon.com or any other present website and use the search engine to find the appropriate album for the songs. Note that you can not search for multiple albums at the same time. Tags can be done per album.
Hope this helps,
Regards

Taking pictures on the cover of an album on an iPod Touch


<p>Music files can be embedded with album art for display on MP3 players. Since most files have an album cover, this without them would be when a device likes the iPod Touch. Apple iTunes users can add or delete album covers. There is no way to change the album art through the device itself. The addition of cover, you have an easier time choosing the album from a list. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open iTunes. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Go to your "Library". <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Highlight the song or songs you want to add album art. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Right-click and choose a song "Get Info". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Select the "Artwork" tab. Here you can add or remove the album art embedded into the file or files. Add an image, click "Add" and navigate to the image of your choice to find. Click "OK" when finished. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Synchronize your computer with the iPod Touch update album art for the device. <br />

Is there any way to fix the slowness of an iPod without removing all the music? I have an iPod classic 160Gb.


I am going to assume that it is your performance that is slowed down.
Unfortunately, there are not many ways to improve the performance, but there are plenty of ways to bog it down.
A way that I found (because I owned a 80 GB) was to NOT display the cover art/album art and disable the album art preview that appears on the right side of the screen when its at a menu.
For the iPod, loading a video will always be slow, but it holds steadily after. I heard it on my iPod a couple of times where the music will slow down (by only a few beats, but its noticeable), no idea why.
Do not load pictures on the iPod either, there really isn't a point.
Hope this helps.

Get album art on g1


To do this you're going to have to re-copy all of the music you want album art for to your G1! Sorry! But here goes...
Firstly, the reason the album art isn't there is because it wasn't bought online, therefore the album art may not be encoded onto the songs. However it's not that hard to encode art yourself on Windows Media Player.
You have to look for the album art online, and save it on your computer. Then, find the songs you want on Windows Media Player (if they are from the same album then ctrl+click them all) then right click. On the right-click menu there should be an option called Advanced Tag Editor. Click that, then the Pictures Tab, and click Add. Then find your album art and select Cover (Front) from the Picture Type drop down menu. Hopefully that will encode your songs with the album art, then you can sync them with WMP or copy and paste them as normal.

Album art not loading


I not entirely 100% sure, but the album art is only supported with WMA, as the album art image is embedded inside of the wma files themselves and not stored separately on the mp3 player.
