Restore vanished artwork in iTunes 11
Authored by: regulus on Dec 03, '12 08:48:23AM
Here's a simple script that will delete and then re-add the artwork back to the selected tracks. I'm not sure if this fixes your problem but give it a try. Of course you can always add more features to the script but this shows the basics. Good luck!
tell application "iTunes"
	set theSelection to selection
	repeat with i from 1 to count of theSelection
		tell (item i of theSelection)
			set artworkCount to count of artwork
			repeat artworkCount times
				set theArtwork to data of artwork 1
				delete artwork 1
				set data of artwork artworkCount to theArtwork
			end repeat
		end tell
	end repeat
end tell

As Kirk pointed out above, embedding the artwork, as this script does, has no affect on the issue at hand.

Restore vanished artwork in iTunes 11

The best I can figure out is that iTunes is simply losing track of where the artwork is in the files. For my movies and TV shows, the artwork was there. For some music, however, it wasn't there at all, and that's very odd.

Thanks for letting me know this technique doesn't work. I didn't check out the scripts on your website, so I didn't know the techniques they used. I just wrote this myself trying to be helpful. If I think of something else I'll post it.

Maybe my problem is different, but Doug's Re-Embed Artwork v1.1 restores the artwork for me.

In my case - if I check "get info" on a track missing its artwork: the artwork tab is empty.
