    OK, most of my music I haven't payed for.

    Though I've started buying it more off of iTunes now.

    But still, I am getting an iPod Classic and want to use the CoverFlow option...for somer reason - I love it.

    But more than half of my music on my iPod don't have album covers...how or where can I find almost all of the covers in like bmp or jpeg or whatever form?

    Is it possible?

    Thanky. [​IMG]

    I've gotten a heap of my album covers from http://www.amazon.com/ You only need a small image because the screen is so small.

    If you are sure that the ID Tags are identical to the ones in the music store (iTunes), you can click 'Get Album Artwork'. It won't work for ALL of them, but it will do the job for a bunch.

    Those are all great suggestions, but these the the two easiest and best alternatives.

    1) If you have the correct artist and album name in the ID3 tag, go to Advanced>get album artwork in itunes. It gets it and puts it on for free, nice feature.

    2) http://www.thejosher.net/iTunes/

    They give you like 1200x1200 high res pics. Only problem is, if it isn't on itunes, you won't get it. So those amazon or google would be the best.

    When I don't find anything on Amazon about the album, www.allmusic.com is a pretty good option since I only copy and paste the Cover, it has a huge library so I can find most of my needs for covers there.

    I've been sorting all my music for a couple of years now =)
