Unhappy new Video iPOD, cannot upload video, missing album covers

hi i recently bought a new 30gb Video iPOD and i have 2 problems:

i am using amarok to copy music on it, everything is fine, but on ipod i do not see album covers. is this supposed to be like this?

second, i would like to upload some videos on it, by i just don't know how. i even installed vmware + winxp + itunes, but whenever i connect ipod, winxp freezes (that's why i do not use it). does anybody know if it's possible to just copy videos on ipod? if yes, in what diredtory should i place them?

thanks a lot for any suggestion!

You should give gtkpod a try. From the site:

What can gtkpod do?

gtkpod allows you to

* Read your existing iTunesDB (i.e. import the existing contents of your iPod including playcounts, ratings and on-the-go playlists).
* Add MP3, WAV, M4A (non-protected AAC), M4B (audio book), podcasts, and various video files (single files, directories or existing playlists) to the iPod. You need a third party product to download podcasts, like 'bashpodder' or 'gpodder'
* View, add and modify Cover Art
* Browse the contents of your local harddisk by album/artist/genre by adding all your songs to the 'local' database. From there the tracks can be dragged over to the iPod/Shuffle easily.
* Create and modify playlists, including smart playlists.
* You can choose the charset the ID3 tags are encoded in from within gtkpod. The default is the charset currently used by your locale setting.
* Extract tag information (artist, album, title...) from the filename if you supply a template.
* Detect duplicates when adding songs (optional).
* Remove and export tracks from your iPod.
* Modify ID3 tags -- changes are also updated in the original file (optional).
* Refresh ID3 tags from file (if you have changed the tags in the original file).
* Sync directories.
* Normalize the volume of your tracks (uses mp3gain or the replay-gain tag)
* Write the updated iTunesDB and added songs to your iPod.
* Work offline and synchronize your new playlists / songs with the iPod at a later time.
* Export your korganizer/kaddressbook/thunderbird/evocalendar/evolution/webcalendar... data to the iPod (scripts for other programs can be added).
