wav is a format whose time has passed because it does not support any standard tagging approach, so it is not surprising your wav files won't retain cover art. You can convert all your wav files to FLAC without losing any digital information (MM will do it for you and retain what tagging you do have) . FLAC files allow standard ID2 (excuse the typo, this should be ID3) tagging.

If you insist on keeping your files in wav format, I believe the cover art can be saved as folder.jpg in the same folder as the track files and it will be read by MM. It will not be part of track tag, however.

MediaMonkey can't embed Artwork in WAV files: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... erties/4.0 I'm not sure if WAV supports this at all.
