    I had this cd that i bought before in odyssey, Love Blends (Limited Edition) by Various Artists from Star Records. I rip it off so i can add it on my itunes library. i learned that it is available in itunes store so i decided to get the album artwork from the us store since i lost the cd case of it. if i just had it then i can just scan the cover and embed it on itunes. now the problem, i can't get the artwork even with the proper tags on the file.

    Here's my tag on the file:

    Album Artist: Various Artists
    Album: Love Blends (Limited Edition)
    Year: 2007
    Genre: World

    here's the itunes link for the album:
    Code:
    http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=258672815&s=143441
    can anyone please help me what's the proper tag for this so that i can get the album cover. i just dont want my coverflow to look dull and miss just one cover. :D :D :D thanks!

    try slothradio na lang. They have tons of album covers that you can use for itunes album cover art. I usually just copy, drag, and drop to add cover art to my original CD-ripped albums (if itunes can't locate it for me). Got this from sloth:
