great start pete works very well and low cpu have not fully added yet just tryed it showing the covers as i'm off to work this morning running late due to this lol...
i'm no flash coder but i had a idea to put past you .
if i can create a xml file of my whole music folder, is it possiable to and ABCDE etc at the top or bottom of the flash file or even a button to show a ABCD screen and on press it shows the albums of the same letter.
ie hit N = all albums in xml starting with N shown
hit B = all albums in xml starting with B shown and so on
just a thought great start
