    Everything for Winamp Pro is working great for me.

    I bought the program to add all my album covers to my music. I have been able to get all albums for my music but 2. Doing advanced searching still brings up nothing although these are very popular albums.

    I plugged my phone to my PC and found the artwork for the albums on the internet and downloaded. I put the files in the music files on my phone and tried applying them that way. Still doesn't work.

    Anyone ran into this issue and have advice on getting artwork for albums the app wont find?

    I also ran into this exact problem. I fiddled with it until I gave up and downloaded the Cover Art Downloader app. With this app you can edit the cover art manually by applying a pic from your files as the album cover. You can put a picture from your vacation in Tahiti as the album cover for The Eagles' Greatest Hits if you want to. I only use the Cover Art Downloader to manually assign photos for songs that Winamp Pro does not because when I first got it and had it scan all of my audio files to automatically assign the art, it got a LOT of them wrong.

    OK, used this app and it worked, sorta.

    It found the appropriate cover art, but when I open up Winamp, still not showing any cover.

    Haven't used WinAmp for awhile but I think Poweramp lets you manually assign the artwork. Maybe give that a try with the trial version and then see if it worked on WinAmp?

    Friendly bump.

    Still haven't gotten the missing artwork into Winamp.

    The Winamp site says to put the album cover into the music folder. Did that and still won't show up.

    I suggest you try Poweramp. Works great at getting cover art.
