    I have this problem as well. I had all my music under a folder titled 'music' in my SD card. I went into that folder and deleted every .jpg or .png in there. Now my album art just stays blank.

    Doesn't give you the correct album art, just gives you zero album art..:)

    There are a couple of options to fix this.

    I use Album Art Grabber (not free, but worth ever penny) there is also Album Art Grabber Free
    which I have never tried, but it is free.:D Either of these should load album art quickly and easily. Compilation albums and soundtracks can be a problem sometimes though.

    Another option is iTag which will actually embed the image into the MP3 for you. It is along process if you are missing all album art though as each file has to be done individually. It works really well for single edits though. It is also free.

    I would look @ SDcard > Android > Data > com.android.providers.media > albumthumbs or just Sdcard > albumthumbs to remove any images you don't want attached to your music.
