Hello,

On my iPhone 3G much of the album art is all messed up. Depending up on the view (upright versus horizonal) some albums show and some don't and some show the wrong album art.

For example I downloaded the movie "Wanted". But today on the airplane one of my albums had a great picture of Angelina Jolie firing a pistol! I've never even watched the movie yet?

Is there a way to force the album art to reset/re-update or whatever?

    What about the album art on your MPB? If not messed up, delete the albums on your iPhone and sync them back again.

    I have the same problem. How do you delete the albums on the iPhone? The music and art?

    To delete the music uncheck the albums you don't want to sync to your phone in the music pane in iTunes with your phone connected and sync after you made your selection.
    Be sure to backup before and that you have the same music in iTunes, otherwise transfer your purchases. After you deleted the music on the phone, sync the music back again by selecting the desired albums or playlists in the music pane.
    Here are some basics about the syncing process:

    This happened to me too after upgrading to 10.5.6. If I'm able to fix it tonight, I'll post what I did.

    With my iPhone connected, in iTunes on the Music tab, I simply unchecked "Sync Music," synced the iPhone, which removed all the music, re-checked "Sync Music" and synced again, which re-added it all. This resolved the problem.

    I just wanted to add I have the same problem- the album art seems jumbled. I have done some searching, and it seems this has been an ongoing problem reported for at least two years, and that loading the albums first with no album art, then again with album art seems to be the most commonly suggested remedy. It would be better if we could find out what the root problem is so it never happens in the first place.

    Album art has been a right dog's breakfast since 2.2. In coverflow mode it's largely ok, although there are two albums which do not even come up with the apple logo on black background in coverflow. There's just an empty space with the caption at the bottom, but you can tap the "empty" space to flip it round to show the track listing! In list view there are black spaces but the artwork is visble in the individual album view....and vice versa! Just today I got a new variation of...correct art in coverflow, black space in list....and the top third of the cover in individual album view!

    First time an update seems to have caused a problem for me.
