Cover art synchs on Ipod, but music doesn't.

Hello,
I've purchased a bunch of songs from an Itunes gift card. All the songs loaded onto my G5 as expected. But when I manually synched them onto my Ipod, the album art shows up, but not the music. When I attempt to play the song, the artwork appears for a brief second and then the Ipod jumps to the next song in the cue.
I next downloaded a free song of the week from the Itunes store and the same thing happened. The song loaded, but just the artwork synched.
I've tried to re-synch it over and over and I'm still just getting the album cover, not music. The songs still play on my IMac, but not on the Ipod.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or what could be the problem would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Try removing the tick mark next to Sync Podcasts from under your iPod's Podcasts configuration tab in iTunes and applying the changes.  Once it has finished, reapply the sync option and again apply the changes to resync your iPod.
This should remove the stranded podcasts.
However, if it doesn't,  A restore of the iPod may be in order.

  • On itunes on my computer I put all my songs into the right albums and cover art on the albums but it doesn't show up that way on my ipod

    On itunes on my computer I took the time to sort my songs put them by the correct artists and albums and got all the cover art for it but when i go to put it that way on my iPod it doesn't work that way? Why is it showing multiple albums for the same album and no cover art for some albums and unknown artists for the artist? It says differently on Itunes on my computer.

    Hi adtsalmon,
    You can only watch the movie on the device you rented it on. Here's a snippet from the Apple Support site (italics mine):
    If you download a rented movie on your computer: You can transfer it to a device such as your Apple TV (1st generation), iPhone, iPad, or iPod if it’s a standard-definition film (movies in HD can only be watched on your computer, iPad, iPhone 4 or later, iPod touch (4th generation or later), or Apple TV). Once you move the movie from your computer to a device, the movie will disappear from your computer's iTunes library. You can move the movie between devices as many times as you wish during the rental period, but the movie can only exist on one device at a time.
    If you download a rented movie on your iPhone 4 or later, iPad, iPod touch (4th generation or later), or Apple TV: It is not transferable to any other device or computer.
    Here's the link to the Movie Rentals FAQs site FYI:

    Hope this helps!
    Cheers,

  • Cover art direct to iPod

    Is there any way I can get iTunes to add cover art to my iPod rather than just to the iTunes library and then having to upload all the tracks onto the iPod again?

    Hmmm... well I guess I am glad that it's not just me, but that makes no sense at all. I can't think from a technical point of view why that would be the case. The iPod itself has all the cover art stored, so why in the world would iTunes not be able to display it?
    Sounds more like a bug to me.

  • TS4006 What can you do if you sent a message, alert and lock mode already on your lost ipod but it doesn't recieve????

    What can you do if you sent a message, alert and lock mode already on your lost ipod but it doesn't recieve???? What else can I do??? I already reported it and also have the find my iPhone app. Anyways how do the police locate an iPod and does warranty cover a lost ipod or can it replace it????

    You would have to ask the Police how they can find your iPod, if it's even possible.  Your warranty with Apple covers defects in materials and workmanship, not loss.

  • HT204088 How how can I synch my ipod + iphone music to my new computer? I get the same error  "my ipod or iphone is synched with another itunes library.An Ipod can be synched with only one itunes library at a time. What would I like to do Erase and Synch

    How can I synch my ipod & iphone music (purchased from itunes on my old laptop) to my new laptop? I keep getting the same message on my itunes on my new laptop: " The ipod/Iphone is synched with another itunes library. An ipod/iphone can be synched with only one itunes library at a time. What would you like to do - Erase and Synch or Transfer Purchases?" What do I do?
    A couple of other items:
    1) I am guessing Apple does not keep a history of all my music purchases? As I did not have my entire library backed-up anywhere, and relying on the music I have on my ipod and my iphone as my only source of itunes music....I have lost over 500 songs!!!
    2) I used to have an Apple account under another account name, and since have switched to a new account name. Is there anyway to find the history of purchases from my old Apple account name and transfer these over to my new account name and onto my new laptop?
    I hope someone can help, I am having a very difficult time trying to obtain answers. Angie

    The iphone/ipod is NOT a storage/backup device.  Not maintaining a backup copy is a big mistake.
    You can transfer itunes purchases from your iphone/ipod to your computer:
    Authorize your computer for all accounts and then click  File>Transfer Purchases

  • Help, Windows recognizes ipod but itunes doesn't

    ive tried everything that ive seen listed but nothing seems to work. My issue is that Windows recognizes ipod but itunes doesn't. I would really apprecaite it if someone could help me with this issue.

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear this is still happening. I had the same problem until this newest version of itunes. The thing that always worked for me earlier was the re-starting of the ipod service. I have nothing else.
    Good luck

  • TS1717 I plug in my Ipod but it doesn't come up in Itunes like it did before.  Can anyone help?  Thanks

    I plug in my Ipod but it doesn't come up in Itunes like it did before.  It always came up under  Genres, etc.   I don't know what to do.  There is an Icon on the top Right of the screen and when I click on it the information on my Ipod comes up.  I can't do anything w/it after that.  I would appreciate any help at all.  Thanks to any and all.

    Make iTunes 11 look and function more like iTunes 10:
    From the upper left corner, choose “Show Menu bar”
    From the “View” menu, choose, “Show Sidebar”
    Now your iPod device shows up as is did before.

  • I try to synch my Ipod but when it tries it says device cannot be found

    try to synch my Ipod but when it tries it says device cannot be found, how do i solve this problem??

    - Try a reset. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reboot the computer
    - Try another cable
    - Try another USB port

  • I received notice about a new cover art requirement (1400x1400 pixels) but can't find a way to change my existing art. My podcast has been updating flawlessly for several years, so I'd hate to have to remove the feed and start over.

    Please note - this was not a personalized email - Apple is sending this out to ALL podcasts that are listed on iTunes.
    If you are hosting with Libsyn or most any other "Podcast" host you should be ok.

    If you are on a self hosted site or worse yet using some file storage service like Dropbox - then you are going to have issues. 
    Again - this leter from Apple does not mean anything is wrong wth your show specifically - it is a generic letter going out to all podcasters.

  • Why doesn't my podcast cover art show in store but appears in iTunes library after I subscribe?

    My podcast cover art is not showing up in the iTunes store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/liberation-radio/id591038133
    As soon as I subscribe via iTunes on my computer and look at the podcast in the Library, the cover art is there. I can't figure out what's wrong. The image is 1400x1400. The original feed submitted to iTunes is here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/LiberationRadio
    Can anyone assist? Thanks in advance!

    Great, that explains it. We had moved the image to a new URL and actually updated the original feed that we input into Feedburner with that URL ... but we also had Feedburner Smartcast turned on which creates its own iTunes tags and overrides any that may already be in the feed, and the image URL in Smartcast there was the old one.
    In any case, we not only updated Feedcast Smartcast with the correct image URL, but we also put a copy of the image at the old URL so that even the URL presently used by iTunes should work.
    Any idea how long it takes for the store to update the cover art? Anything we can do to expedite it?
    Thanks!

  • Nano cover art issues (covers loaded, but don't always display)

    Just picked up an 8GB Nano yesterday, and while the whole idea of having cover art displayed is nice and all, it doesn't seem to be working correctly. I can load the art just fine, and it displays in the Cover Flow view (after a small delay when loading each one), but when just playing the songs and moving back and forth between them with the next/previous buttons (even within the same album), the album art seems to always disappear after one or two songs, only to be replaced by the increasingly-irritating "music note on a gray square".
    Is this a known issue with the 3G Nanos (or iPods in general), or am I looking at a defective unit?

    I actually thought of that last night after I posted that, so I did a test:
    I played the first song in an album that had cover art present. When I hit the "next track" button, the album art promptly disappeared. I then went back to the previous menu and went straight to the song where the cover art disappeared and selected that one. Once again, hitting the "next track" button made the album artwork disappear.
    I'm not a huge fan of iTunes, though, so I've been using Winamp to manage the Nano, especially since I can have Winamp automatically get cover art for songs without having to give it a credit card number.

  • Cover Art View for iPod

    I use my 80 GB iPod as my main location for all my music, and pretty much only connect the iPod to my computer when I wish to manage my music or create new playlists, etc.
    One thing I have noticed is that when I am browsing my music library from my iPod in iTunes, the only viewing mode available is the standard list view. The two "newer" views, the list view that shows you the cover art, and the nifty new cover art (or jukebox) view as I like to call it is not available when browsing the music on my ipod. The buttons are actually grayed out.
    Am I missing something?
    iTunes 7.1.1
    5th generation iPod 80 GB
    OS 10.4.9

    Hmmm... well I guess I am glad that it's not just me, but that makes no sense at all. I can't think from a technical point of view why that would be the case. The iPod itself has all the cover art stored, so why in the world would iTunes not be able to display it?

  • No cover art when importing CD to music library...

    I travel alot and have a vast CD colllection. That's why I bought my iPod. It's a convenient way to take my music with me on planes, trains, and where ever. While I am very happy with that decision, one of my disappointments that when iTunes downloads CD information from the internet, it does not download cover art.
    I own the CDs and use the music for personal use, so I don't see this as a copyright issue. If I rip the same CD using Widows Media Center, or almost any other software, the downloaded information includes the album cover. Why the hestitency with Apple's iTunes? All I want to see is a picture of the album cover next to the name of the tune that is playing.

    Hello Anna,
    And welcome to Apple Discussions!
    There could a couple of different things happening here. First of all, are you having iTunes automatically retrieve album information from its database and filling in these details automatically, or are you entering the album information in by hand?
    If you are entering this information in by hand make sure the Album name is the same throughout each track. To make sure, highlight all the tracks in the album at once by holding down the CTRL key. Then right->click on them and choose "Get Info" from the menu. From there, head over to the Info tab and re-enter the album name.
    If that is not the case, is this album a compilation, meaning that it has tracks with various other artists as well? If so, its probably marked as part of a compilation in iTunes and you can remove the tick mark next to this option from the Info tab as well.
    For now we'll start there.
    Hope this helps.

  • Cover art wrong on phone, but correct on computer?

    I just recently got the iPhone 5c, and when I went synced all my music onto the phone, half of the cover art for my albums were wrong. I've deleted songs off the iPhone and tried resyncing many times. But they just keep showing up in the wrong places. Also, when I open iTunes, many of the albums I've bought are grayed out and I have to redownload them from my phone. I don't know if that could contribute to this issue. But does anyone have any idea how I could fix this? I'm beginning to feel a tad helpless.

    i'm having a similar problem, but even with songs I didn't edit in the genre view.  For example, Nate Dogg's "Regulate" from the Above the Rim Soundtrack is still classified as "Soundtrack" in my iTunes Library.  However, it shows up in the "Classical" genre on my iPhone.  Similarly, tracks from an old 2005 iTunes New Music  Compliation Sampler show up in my "Classical" library on my iPhone, even though it is labeled as "Pop" in my iTunes computer library by Apple. 
    I wonder if it's a problem with Apple's/iTunes labeling of music, though I can't for the life of me figure out why a Pop song labeled as such by iTunes would be showing up in my "Classical" iPhone library.
