and possibly to any good rain-meter/gadgets that work with windows media player..
one that automatically fetches album art from last.fm would be wonderful

that's Cd Art Display http://www.cdartdisplay.com

it's a stand-alone application that you can set to launch automagically when you start your mediaplayer. as far as I recall it works with foobar (<--what I use), winamp, windows media player and vlc. maybe some more. by default it searches amazon.com i think, but you can set it to search last.fm if you want.

huh, that's strange. never happened to me, but then again, I've only used it with winamp and foobar.

I did a quick scan of their forum for people with similar problems, came up with nothing. check the setting for coversearches and how covers are stored on your comp. there is also a manual search feature in the right-cklick menu if all else fails.

I was wrong about the last.fm search, but you can still search google and five amazon.-sites. and make sure the option "Query just for artist" isn't active.

also in options you have a troubleshoot-feature.

I'm sorry if I'm not very coherent but it's late and I've been up since 5.45 this morning anyways, good luck and I hope you get your problem solved, cd art display is awesome when it works.

edit: heh, last thought, try asking for help on their forums, they're usually very helpful, just make sure you give them info about your os/software setup.
