    I wonder could someone please help me ?

    I've just got a new Hero and before I replaced the bundled memory card with my own I had a really nice 'view' for browsing tracks in Music. Now I've put my own memory card in and applied the album art, I don't have this nice view any more. It used to show tracks with big album art pics that you could flick through horizontally, iPhone style. Now I get a crappy looking vertical list with tiny pics and can't get the other view back. How do I do this ?

    Android v 1.5 (I think)

    PS: Great phone.

    Thanks Tuahogary.

    I'd only copied one album over to the phone from my PC. It turns out the horizontal slide cycles between albums in the Now Playing list and, since I only had one album on, there was nothing for it to change to.

    Hi, I also had problems viewing my albums in the landscape mode on my Hero. But now I do not think it's possible at all. Also if I drag and drop from my itunes folder in my pc to the sd card, the album art will show. But if I rip my songs in WMP, and drag into the Hero, there's no album art at all. All very confusing. :eek:

    The Android/HTC music app does NOT work in landscape mode i.e. turning your phone on its side. However, when playing a song, you can switch between the cover flow like mode and song list mode.

    As for album art, it is always a tricky thing. If you use itunes and it works for you, then it is best to stick to using it. But below is my post from another thread regarding album arts:
