Where does the iPod cover art come from?

Can someone please explain this to me. I finally replaced my two and a half year old 3G iPod with one of them nifty 60GB iPod video ones (actually it was OD who got it for me). Inzain, according to what I read if you want to add album cover art to the iPod you have to do it manually or get a program that does for you. I've done neither and yet I have cover art appearing on the iPod for at least 30% of the albums. These are albums which I own and which I had ripped years ago. Long before iTunes. Does iTunes automatically get cover art for your albums, and if so why didn't it get the art work for all of them?

It happened randomly to me, I couldn't find a 'Find Album Details' command such as the one in Windows Media Player. It probably works for albums/songs with unique names that are not used by more than one artist, or maybe just the ones with exact names. I don't know!

I know what you mean!

I have random cover art for a Tammy Wynette album and something else I downloaded via Limewire (illegally).

The BBC podcasts also have cover art for them - the Radio 4 logo.

It seems totally random...
