    Isnt there an application that could search your ID3 Tag information and download the covers automatically?

    WMA will do that but it makes the files invisible (only reabable by WMA) and the image quality is low(sucks).

    Well I know the newer 5.x version of Winamp has a "Auto-Tag" feature for your MP3's that are lacking, or just have incomplete ID3 Tags... And from my expierience it works very well. But also theres a Album Art feature that will search a database (I have no idea which one or where) and give you a few options of album art to choose from, to download. However, it doesnt download and embed into the actual MP3 like I'd like. It instead downloads the album art to the folder that the mp3 is in. So if you have 100 songs in C:\Music lets say, and you correct one MP3 file, then all of the other MP3's now share the same picture as the album art.... And that IMO is bull....

    I've also heard iTunes does a good job at album art. But I couldnt say because I never messed with it.

    And I am almost positive I seen something on Tekzilla about album art stuff... But I cant remember what it was, thats why I was asking....
