    I am having the same problem. Even took the iPod to the Apple store for a replacement, but the new one is exhibiting the same problem. Apple better come out with a software fix for this soon.

    If you can, try it on a different computer. If it works there the problem is somewhere on your computer.

    Don't you just hate it when someone pipes in and tells you that whats happening isn't happening. Geeze---this is a major mess up and still no word from Apple on the fix.

    To help narrow things down, how are you getting artwork onto your tunes? Do you add your own by downloading images and copy/pasting them in iTunes, do some of them come preloaded with artwork from other sources, or do you have iTunes add them automatically? What sizes of artwork do you typically have (dimensions & file size)?

    very interesting... I wonder if it's something with the iTunes artwork specifically or artwork in general. Thanks for the update

    i too expected some bugs, but not so many MAJOR ones (crashing, no video out for old docks/cables, slow cover flow..). Did you submit feedback to apple via the ipod feedback page?

    Yeah i read about the authentication chips too, and I'm still hopeful that this is an overreaction and something that can be fixed via firmware. I have a keyspan AV dock that I only used a couple of times before my 5.5 80GB was stolen and I was looking forward to using it with the classic.

    I'm even more annoyed that the camera connector doesn't work with the classics either! This doesn't seem to have any reason for not working since there even isn't a new version of the camera connector. I take a lot of photos and I rely on the connector to offload flash cards. Disgraceful that Apple removed support for it, and many other things without saying anything on the classic webpage. Games don't work either! shame shame..
