    Album Art, MP3 ID Tags...

    I have searched the forums and have found nothing lately that points in this general direction. My music is setup like this:
    M:\Media\MP3\artist name\Album name\
    ...album art.jpg
    ...artist-song.mp3

    In RR I would see all the album art and correct song/artist info. Since installing Centrafuse 1.7 only about 25% of my are is showing and some of the artist/song info is showing with weird symbols and spac es. I was wondering if I need to change the way I setup my music?

    Thanks in advance,
    Tony

    I look for folder.jpg, album.jpg, <name of song>.jpg, embedded images in the files themselves...

    but I do not look for "album art.jpg", I have never seen that one before. Did a program do that or did you do that by hand?

    What I had done was copy the images from amazon.com into the album folder. The actual image was not called "album art.jpg". It was more like "984hj5r97h0qh037h.jpg"...
    I was just to lazy to rename all of the files.

    What is the best way? I mean better for CPU and RAM performance? Should I embed all of the art into the ID3 tags?

    Small sidetrack... Check into RenameIt!, it's an excellent program for doing mass renames in various ways.
