Hi All,
I am using gtkpod 0.99.8 and coverarts don't show in the ipod. I add the coverart inside gtkpod and they show up both in the local repository and on gtkpod's view of the ipod contents. They are even preserved between ipod disconnect/reconnects and gtkpod reruns. There are no errors when updating with the ipod and I can notice no freez when using the ipod's interface. The ipod shows no indication that the files have coverart; no empty frame.
This is a listing of my  iPod_Control/Artwork/:

 I am using a 5G ipod video, my model is identified as MA146 and my device is  iPod(0x1209), Apple(0x05ac). I am using FreeBSD by I don't think that is relevant.

Is there any restriction on the format of the coverarts? For example should they have a special size? Should they be in JPG, BMP, or any other special format?
If yes does gtkpod convert the coverarts to the correct format.

Please CC your replies to me as I am not in either list.
