Ideally, as in my case, all your tracks would have Album Artwork either embedded or attached to them so that the album/sleeve artwork is displayed in the music player.

For more information on this you can use the "Search this Forum" feature or just Google it to find ways of adding artwork to your existing tracks.

If there is no artwork attached to the track, rather than leaving a blank screen, a random Gallery image is shown.

However, you can change this by going to Music Player > Menu > Settings > Visualisation and ticking the box and a graphic equalizer image is shown.

Hope this helps.

There's an app called 'cover art downloader' I had the same problem and used that to get all of mine sorted.

My bad, as they say.

At least it obscures it a bit.

You could always splash out on the very nice PowerAmp player from the Market which will endeavour to load album artwork for you over WiFi.

There are 2 things to to:

To remove thumbnails of deleted multimedia files from the Gallery:

Install SDrescan.

To delete all album art covers from the Music Player:

Try this:

Go to SETTINGS > APPLICATIONS > MANAGE APPLICATIONS

Select the ALL tab

Scroll down to MEDIA STORAGE

Select CLEAR DATA

i am not sure of my answer just try it lol.

1st download a small size of images (try a Portrait size)

then plug in your Android Phone in your Computer (Connect USB)

then scan your SD CARD

>search for media folder (Open)

>audio folder (Open)

>Music folder (Create One if you Don't have a Music Folder) (Open)

>Paste all your Mp3 here in Music Folder together With your Downloaded Image

>then Done...

Note: You must Edit your Music File.. Erase all except for the Title.. Very Important is the Album Name.. It must be clean.

Only 1 Image is allowed in Music Folder..
