I have been using MM for years largely because handling artwork has been a breeze.
However since I upgraded to v4 I find that my car stereo (which displays album art on the screen) no longer recognizes the artwork of any new MP3s I tag.
I was hoping that my update today from v4.0.2 to v4.0.3 might fix the problem, but I tried again and it remains.
To confirm the issue, I took my USB stick to my old computer, which still has v3 (free version) installed on it. I selected a track, opened Properties > Artwork and did a "Save As..." from the image. Then I did an Artwork "Remove" to wipe it from the tag. Finally I opened the saved .jpg image and used copy & paste to paste it back into the file in MM.
I took my USB stick out to the car and it worked fine.
I should note that I have always used the "Save image to tag (if possible)" option.
Note also that when I use MediaMonkey the artwork is still visible. It's only on the external device that it is not visible.
So I figure that the problem can only be either (1) an issue with v4, or (2) something in my settings. I'd love it to just be a setting but I can't think what could be wrong.
I have noticed that v4 has more Artwork options than v3 did. The "Image Filename" option used to default to "folder.jpg" but now it appears to deal in .thm files.
Does this setting actually make a difference to me seeing as I "save image to tag"? I would have thought not.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions then I'd love to hear them.
