    Default album artwork on iPhone 5 not showing correctly
    Not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum or not, so mods feel free to move this if necessary. Basically my album artwork shows up fine in iTunes, but when I drop the album onto my iPhone 5, it adds a seemingly random cover art to said album. I didn't notice this happening until maybe a month ago. Looked at my software update log and have no clue as to why this is happening. I have tried everything, from redoing all the tags to manually adding the artwork before AND after it was put on my phone. Nothing seems to work and the filesystem for album artwork uses some very odd numbering system, so I can't keep it straight which art is for which album without digging through each folder separately. Really annoying. Anyone else having or had this issue?

    Hi, Presuming all your music is on your PC, I would unsync all music and resync with iTunes. If that doesn't work, there are two Artwork folders I would rename to say ArtworkBackup and then sync again. They are in
    Directory
    /var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control
    And
    /var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes
