    Also, how did you run this command? did you run it from a command prompt, or from the Start-->Run and type it in there?

    You need to open a command prompt, then change directory to the parent directory of all your album folders. Then run it from there.

    So if you have a folder named "Music" on your C: drive that has multiple folders under it, you need to cd\music and then run the command.

    blurp and d_sellers1:

    I ran from start->run->command, in the correct directory, with admin privileges, none of the files open.

    Here is what is wierd that I failed to mention before - if I type the code as posted in your initial post:

    Code:
    for /r %%I in (*-*.jpg) do copy "%%I" "%%~dpIalbum.jpg"
    then the command WORKS! It names all the album covers as "album.jpg". If I change only the text "album" in the above code to "folder" - then I get the access denied message. Wierd???!!! Why is that?! I want the files named as "folder.jpg", not "album.jpg"

    That's really strange, I just tried it with folder, and it worked for me. What OS are you using?

    Edit: OH! do you already have some files named folder.jpg in some of the folders? If so, run the command that d_sellers1 posted, then run this to delete all of them:

    Code:
    for /r %%I in (folder.jpg) do del "%%I"
    and see if it gives you any errors. This will tell you if one of the folder.jpg files is locked by something.

    I didn't delete 2 jpg files before running the command as they were for an album that was unreleased and couldn't be retrieved by the album art downloading programs...

    I guess these 2 jpg files were causing the problem! I did the attrib command and then tried again and now it works! I've got "folder.jpg" in every album folder now! Thanks for the help guys!!!

    For Windows XP SP2 (Tested)
    Copy this into a text document and save it as AlbumArt.bat in your MyMusic or whatever folder, then open a command prompt or just execute from explorer...

    <<Code Follows do not use this line in bat file>>

    @echo Album Art Generation
    @echo off
    attrib -S -H -R f*.jpg /S
    FOR /R %%I IN (F*.jpg) DO copy "%%I" "%%~dpIalbum.jpg"
    @echo on

    <<Code Done, do not use this line in bat file>>

    This will grab all your hidden folder.jpg files and make them album.jpg(s)
