trixmoto - thanks for replying.
The "gfx" I mentioned is just shortened notation for "Grafix", not a special format or anything else.
All images are valid, not marked hidden or system. They can be viewed with several grafix programs including showing as thumbnails in Windows XP Pro.
Every "folder.jpg" image in each album folder can be injected into the MP3 file manually by Monkey, but only places a blank image if using your script. (Exactly the same as 'smiller' in the above post').
XP is fully patched to date, Norton Antivirus is turned off (so vbs scripts work) and all other programs other than monkey turned off or disabled.
My system is AMD3500 64bit, 1gb ram, 2x 200gb HDD, 2x Liteon DVDRW/CDRW and floppies etc - machine is not the problem.
All other scripts I use - Magic Node (none autostarting until I need them) and the standard scripts with monkey, all work OK.
I used your AlbumArtTagger v2.0 from your site, installed and removed it several times, but with no luck.
Any other suggestions? Thank you for trying to help me.
