    Hi guys

    All my music I play via the default music player doesn't have the cd artwork on which it does have on my PC before I transferred it.

    Does anyone know how to make it show on the hero?

    Thanks if you can help :)

    It all depends on how the artwork was added. I'm sure there's a tone of ways to do it, but I do know that art added using iTunes will display correctly.

    (Yes, it does seem slightly immoral to be recommending an iProduct on these forums :p ).

    Copy the cover art image to the same folder as the music and rename it to (I think) 'CoverArt.jpg'.

    Thanks to both of you. I'm going to try both methods. I tunes first... I've just downloaded itunes...how do I transfer music from itunes to my hero? Normally I just copy the folder from 'my music' to the hero but that obviously didn't work.... so how do I do it from itunes?

    Thanks :)

    I tag the files in iTunes, then drag + drop the files from the pc to /sdcard/media/audio/music.

    Or, iTunes agent can be used to sync to the phone like you would an iPod.

    AlbumartGrabber works pretty good at analysing the music on your phone and finding the cover art for you...
    Doesn't handle compilations very well at times, though

    Use MP3Tag, it's freeware and works 100%. Just make sure you add the cover as FRONT cover.
