um, great. now i have no artwork..

This happened to me, too. However, I found the information in the Apple knowledgebase so it wasn't this thread where I blew away the artwork. If it matters, I started adding album art with iTunes 7 (and not before) because of the new display method. Anyway, it appears that the album art is still here for all the items where I pasted it into the info of the song. The album art missing for me was for all the songs that iTunes found art.

I read in a different thread that the art can be either placed into the song file, which I believe is how I did it, or iTunes has a database it uses to show the image. From what I read, it sounds like, if you pasted into the album art area in the lower left corner, it was pasting into iTunes, not the song.

One other factor that may be different from others: I put all my music on the iPod and removed it from my computer. I did this to free up hard drive space. At the beginning, I still had the cover art for those that iTunes found. After I unchecked the show art option, click Apply, checked, and clicked Apply again, the artwork was gone for those that I did not paste into each song.
