    Usually if iTunes doesn't match me with album art i just bite the bullet and get the album art off google and add it to the track manually. Can take a long time if you have a lot of tracks that don't match but for me i find its worth spending the time.

    Right click on the song and choose edit. It's the last tab and you copy and paste the cover art there. When you sync to iPad, it will sync the art as well

    Lol. Yes, I have 20 GB of songs and I've done a lot of cover art. I'd hate to have to do it all over again

    If you have iTunes set to show the album cover in the lower left corner, you can bypass the Get Info dialog. Artwork can be drug to/from or copy&pasted there with one or multiple songs selected.

    Sometimes when iTunes adds album artwork to ripped CD's, it only adds it to the first song. In that case you can select that song, right click and copy on the album, select all the other songs, then right click and paste.

    Works on the Mac, anyway. I won't guarantee it will works for the Windows version.

    Hi
    Thanks for the help &advice, I have the album art work on my MacBook pro but when synced to my ipad3 some albums are missing. I have the problem of getting these onto my iPad as I can't seem to do this from my iPad?

    Thanks again Tim

    Just keep synching. This happened to me but perseverance is good. Add another song to your 'playlist' and it should work. I've not had problems for ages though.
