Many entries on Artwork tab cause MM to hang

Post by Darryl_Gittins » Wed Oct 15, 2014 3:19 pm

I wonder if someone can suggest something here to fix the clipart in my library. When I open track properties for some song, and then click the Artwork tab, MM takes a long time to open the tab, apparently because the song has very many entries for Artwork. And then to remove the extra entries, I click "Remove", and then MM takes a long time again (several minutes) to reload the tab. Therefore, just to clean up one track, it could take hours. Can anyone suggest a fast way to clean up these tracks?

Most of my songs use embedded artwork, so the folders themselves don't typically contain a lot of jpg files, though the folders in my library do contain a lot of tracks. For example, a folder might contain about 500 or so songs. Might that have something to do with the problem?

Thanks for any suggestions!!

If you have external Art files it's best to have files sorted per Album folders with the Artwork in it. Otherwise Artwork may end up being associated with all files in the folder.
