Well, I figured out why my album art doesn't show in "album art " mode while it was working fine on the audio player and main menu skin.
My path to music is: c:\...\my Music
My tracks would be in: c:\...\My Music\"artist"\"album"\"tracks"
so although "album art" mode will display the album folder names it will not look into the subfolder for the .jpg.
The way I see it my only choices are change my directory structure to c:\...\My Music\"albums"; or to copy an album .jpg from an album folder to the artist folder - so an album cover would be displayed with the artist.
I don't really like either of these choices so any thoughts or other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Also, when in "album art" mode there isn't a directory lock to keep me from going above my music folder as Guino added to audio browser.
Thanks if anyone has any ideas!
