Why won't iTunes download album art?

Asked by gsiener (454points) September 21st, 2008

For a bunch of the albums I have, I’ll visit the iTunes store and see the album w/ cover. When I choose to “Download Album Art” for a song/album, it doesn’t work.

It can be pretty picky. I have heard that making sure the genra is the same can help.

I personally just grab the art from Amazon. Pick a album and do a select all and drag over the image.

Make sure the album doesn’t have spaces following of before it in the info or that every bit of punctuation is the same. Sometimes that’s the problem. :)

Some things to consider:

1. Are you connected to the iTunes store (sometimes opening it first and then making a request for Album Art works)?
2. Is the Album correctly named?
3. Is the album actually available on iTunes?

When correcting info of songs, I often use the iTs as a reference. This way, I know that I am getting what will trigger the art downloads. If it comes to it, you may have to clear all of the info and start over.

Good advice the genre. I also found that matching the album name helped (sometimes).
