Album art

Hi all
Just got my new media center up and running and firstly downloaded from my NAS drive all my MP3s albums now the thing is when i open the my music folder theres obviously lots of square mosaics but only say 50% of them show the album art, why is this so and how do i get all the albums to show the cover art? the music folder as it sits on the NAS drive contains the mp3 music folder + jpg images of the front,back and cd art, any clues?
Thanks
Richard.

Welcome to the forums!
I would recommend filling out your system specs in your profile....it will help people help you.

As far as Media Center, frankly I tried it out yesterday playing music, and afterwards I disabled it in the Windows features menu.

Why did I disable it? I have no TV tuner, so watching DVD's, or listening to music, can be done with WMP12(or other 3rd-party programs) that use much less of your computer's resources. MC did look kinda cool, but it just seemed like a waste, even though my computer would easily run it.

Sorry to get slightly off track and not exactly answer your question, but I'm sure one of the experts here will have the answer you seek. Again, welcome to Seven Forums.

for the most part wmp will find the albulm art for your music on it's own, you can add artwork to each file individually if you choose though. depending on the size of your music collection and how well the meta data is put in the amount of time this can take will vary.
