iTunes issue

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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.
