Can anyone help me here? I am trying to add album art to albums in my iTunes that don't have art displayed. (Most even have jpgs in the blasted folder that holds the music itself) I have tried on my own, I have looked up how it's supposed to work, but nothing works. I can open multiple tracks, see the little empty square, click on it, choose the art, see the art in the little box with the little check mark where it needs to be, hit 'okay' and poof! it's all gone like I did nothing. I have tried drag and drop with the exact same (lack of) effect. It's really starting to bug me.

I copy and paste into the "Get Info" pane.

According to what Stuology found out for me, it's the sound file type that's the problem. It seems one can't save such album info to a .wav file and iTunes isn't saving it outside the sound file itself.

iTunes should have a mp4 version saved somewhere (when you "Add a File/Folder", it should show "Converting..."). If not, you can either re-rip the CD (if using WMP, there's a setting to save as .mp3 rather than .wav) or use a converter.

I'm a little obsessive about organizing my music.
