    The main problem is false positives, example

    loading up a file by the band "Live" and it now has the cover for "2 Live Crew"

    Big difference !

    But if it is a good tag, you will have the Album, and Artist, and Track to match this up with...

    Actually, I've found that Windows Media Player 9 has pretty damn good support for Album Art.. The only problem is that the covers you get are a bit lower resolution that you can pull off of some of the other websites that Gotcha Covered supports..

    Anyway, to use it just load a mp3 in WMP.. Make sure you enable "Show Media Information" in the View/Now Playing.. Go to Now playing and click "Find ablum info" on the top right corner.. It will return a search with the albums that match.. You click on the right one and it updates the tag and saves the album art in the current folder as a hidden file. You can then stick it on the song with tag & rename..

    Tag and Rename does this. It will search for the album and all you do is tell it to apply the info and it will copy the album to the ID3 tag or copy it to a .jpg or both.

    And thanks for the no boobies.
