Disappearing Album covers with iPod Photo

I have an iPod with photo, and I am experiencing something a little odd. It seems that, if I go for a while without docking the iPod, it will stop displaying the album covers. Dock it, and they return. Anyone else experience this, or know the reason?


If your iPod is set to update automatically then try this:
1. Connect your iPod
2. Disable "Show Album art" in iTunes>Edit>Preferences>iPod.
3. Syncronise the iPod with iTunes. (Disconnecting and then reconnecting your iPod will do the trick)
4. Re-enable "Show Album Art" in iTunes>Edit>Preferences>iPod.
5. Syncronise the iPod again.
