    Some of the music albums I have loaded into my Hero don't show a picture of the album cover when the tracks are playing.

    How do I get the picture to show?

    How did you put the album art? I always embed them into each MP3 file using MP3tag in Windows first, then it will be loaded successfully by every MP3 players I used.

    Another way to do it is to put a .jpg of the album art into the album folder and the call it AlbumArt.jpg

    This worked for me, a bit of a slow process.

    The proper way to do it ans itandy said is to embed the art into the mp3tag, but you need the software for that.

    This is the process that I use and has worked very well.

    Does anyone know how to add album art without embedding it in the MP3s?
