I have a similar but opposite problem. My playlist grabbed a random picture from my gallery and now I can't get rid of it.I even deleted the picture but it still shows the picture whenever I play music.
How do I get rid of it?
Why would one load album art onto an SD card to begin with?
The mp3's I have on my Droid (over 150 mp3 song files) all have the album art embedded within the id3 tag, which will show up when the song plays. I don't want to load the actual album art files and use up SD card space when I don't need to.
(Maybe some people don't realize that the album art image files are NOT needed in order for the cover art to appear, as long as the image is already within the id3 tag?)
Here is a tip, load the music player and scroll through the album view to make sure all the pictures are showing in the media player, then go into the gallery and delete all the album art pictures. You will notice the art from the music player will still work even if you deleted it from the gallery.
2. in the folder where the album art is located press soft menu button (between the back and home buttons) and create new zip name is "nomedia"
3.long press that new zip file and click edit / rename
4.rename that file to ".nomedia"
having that .nomedia file in the folder will hide any photos in your gallery.
I had an iTag folder with all the album art I looked for when renaming and tagging songs I downloaded using iMusic Tao
I already had Astro File manager. Unfortunatly for me my music is organized in folders by artist then album. I put the .nomedia file in each folder that contains the mp3 files and the folder art but they are still showing up in my gallery. I even restarted the Droid trying to get it to work.
I change my music every month or so and the next time I'm going to set MediaMonkey to not send over the album art.
Thanks for the help though.
