iTunes issue

17 posts in this topic

When I add artwork to an album I normally googly the image, and drag it to the now playing box. But now I can't seem to do that, nor drag it to album artwork tab in the 'get info' section of a track.

Why is this?? I cannot be bothered to save an image then browse for it etc etc

Anyone else having the same problem? Randomly occurred so I updated iTunes, but it resolved nothing.

Mac or PC?

This is an issue thats been happening with itunes 10 a bit.

You need to make sure the file isn't read-only.

PC/Windows

Got so much artwork to update, I like doing it as I add them in.

Quite annoying.

Try finding the source file and open the properties tab, see if read-only is checked. If so, uncheck it.

Are you also sure your files are converted to mp3 format before trying to add the artwork? A lot of them may be WAV (this doesn't let you view the artwork)

I didn't even know you could drag-and-drop, I've been saving the picture files and adding manually for ages.

It is a pain in the arse.

I dunno.

Normally I would copy and paste but I've been having problems with that lately. When I sync it they disappear

Unchecked all read only's. Still nothing.

None of mine are of .wav format.

When you connect your ipod, the main page on itunes for it there will be a 'manually arrange files' (something similar) box to check.

Do you use the get album option, in the advanced tab of itunes?

I know it doesn't work for every album but the selection is pretty huge and time saving.

Yeah, but there's a huge amount of stuff that I have which isn't in the iTunes store, so not all artwork can be processed.

I guess I have no choice but to start saving images now.
