    Hi all, I have some questions and have not been able to correctly google a response.

    I know that I can pretty much drag and drop an .mp3 to the phone and the music player will find it. But, what is the best file structure to use so that when I use the album flip feature it works? I used the following and am not sure if it is too many directories:

    MP3
    |_
    Artist
    |_
    Album
    |_
    Song

    Can people give me their suggestions? I also can't get the stock player to download album art regardless of whether the file is in the internal or sdcard storage. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    I use a program called MP3tag that I use to manage the tags on the mp3 file. It pulls info (Song Name, Artist, Album name, Album art) form Amazon.com and attaches it to the mp3 file. I then use the move function built into the program to transfer the files to my SD card. I doesn't need a folder structure. It works everytime.

    I found, and I know it sounds weird, that the album art shows up eventually. I have about 1700 songs, all dragged and dropped thru usb, as albums, into the MP3 folder and I would say 90% have art. I messed with this so much im leaving it alone.
