No Album Art with 2nd gen Nano

Post by eyeruh » Fri Sep 15, 2006 1:03 pm

Anyone get album art to work with the new 2nd-gen nanos? I can sync the music files with no problems, but I can't get any artwork to show up. I'm pretty sure I've got the art stored in the tag and I tried the 'iTunes trick' of disabling/re-enabling album art.

Anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks!


EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'm using version 2.5.4.978 of MM.

I'm just ordering a 2G Nano from Apple and was wondering if this is true? Has someone found a solution?

No, there seems to be no way or I simply haven't found it yet.

What type of iPod exactly do you mean (i.e. what capacity)? I wonder whether Apple modified USB ID and so MM doesn't recognize the iPod correctly. Please do this:

1. Go to Generic device plug-in configuration.
2. Use find device button
3. Send me the USB ID found for your iPod.

Just to be sure, you could also send me content of iPod_Control folder from your iPod after successful album art synchronization by iTunes (so that I review whether there isn't any other change in AA format).

Thanks,
Jiri

The USB ID is "VID_05AC&PID_1260".

I have the 8gig model and I've updated the firmware to version 1.0.1. I'm not sure if the problem was there with the original firmware or not.

I'll send the iPod_Control folder in a moment. Thanks!

Ok, thanks. It is really caused by a new USB ID as I expected, 'VID_05AC&PID_1260' wasn't used by Nano 1st gen. I uploaded a modified plug-in for testing to http://www.mediamonkey.com/beta/d_iPod.dll

Let me know if it works fine.

No success here!

I have the same USB ID but the synchronized songs just show no album art. What can I do to help you fix this?

I have the "2nd Generation" iPod nano with 2GB in silver.

Actually, I spoke too soon. :-(

The album art shows up as being saved to the ipod when I look at the songs in MM, but the art doesn't actually show up on the ipod itself.

Ok, the following would help:

1. Clear your iPod (delete all tracks is enough).
2. Synchronize a track with album art to iPod using iTunes.
3. Save iPod_Control folder and send it to me.
4. Clear iPod again.
5. Synchronize the very same track with some album art to iPod, this time using MediaMonkey with the new plug-in (link above).
6. Save iPod_Contol folder and send this second version to me.

This should help in finding what's wrong.

Thanks,
Jiri

Ok, I've done what you've asked.

The folder after syncing with itunes is here: http://www.nobear.com/ipod_control_itunes.zip

The version after syncing with MM is here: http://www.nobear.com/ipod_control_mm.zip

album art on NANO 2nd Gen

Post by Guest » Tue Sep 19, 2006 1:40 am

Hey there. I just bought MM and a 2ng Gen nano.

I'm having the same issue with album art on 2nd gen nano. I'm saving the art to the tag. Using 3v2 tags.

Some times it seems to come up on the nano, some times it doesn't. It seems like I've tried a million things and can't seem to nail it down.

Any ideas?
