This is not a post about downloading Album Art :icon_ banana:
I know about the Album Art grabber, and it looks useful, but all of my music (the full albums, anyway) already have album art either through iTunes (Can't seem to find out where the art is stored, but not a big deal) or through the Zune software (which downloads a folder.jpg directly to the album folder).
I've put a bunch of music onto my Droid, and I use it all the time. I've left my Zune at home ever since I got it.
Here's my question: When I copy my music (with the folder.jpg files) to the droid, only some of the album art shows up. Is there a particular file size or type that the album art has to be in order to show up?
that is a good question i have the same issue. we need more help on this.
I have found that if it's 500x500 or smaller it works. Also, it doesn't matter what the file name seems to be. As long as it's in the same folder as the music it will be picked-up the first time you play a song from that album. It also makes a copy of the jpeg to /sdcard/albumart. The file is renamed to some random number, which I can only assume is tied to an internal database key.
The 500x500 might be part of it. I think that some of my album art is bigger than that; but I'm not sure about playing something for the first time. I put some brand new albums on my Droid, all of which have the folder.jpg, and only some of the art shows up; so it might be something else.

What I ended up doing was find the script at the link below which goes into iTunes and forces imbedding on your album art into the Mp3 files. Once I ran this script, I never had a problem again. Since I started using my Droid, I always see Album art in MixZing. Without any other interactions.
Downloading Embed Artwork...
That is excellent! Thank you for that.

I'm still not sure why some show up and some don't before playing, unless the Zune software embeds the album art where iTunes, without the script above, does not.
