Windows 7: WMP12 low resolution 200x 200 album artwork

WMP12 low resolution 200x 200 album artwork

I am having trouble with album artwork in Windows Media Player 12/ Media center.

I just got through converting all my iTunes Music to mp3's and migrating to windows media player/center. The problem is that only some of the songs and Albums have high res artwork. All the Artwork appears to be downloaded in Media player but a few albums in Media Center still have the nice high resolution artwork. The artwork provided by Media Player does not seem to be of any higher quality. What can I do to fix this problem?



I am also having a problem with Windows Media Center displaying artwork from songs I've deleted a long time ago. I've checked everywhere on my computer and there isn't a single trace of them. I don't even know how these songs got there in the first place but Media Center

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I do give rep.

You shouldn't have had to do that.....I'm pretty sure WMP plays the AAC files (.m4a) natively now.

I can't answer your query about the album art because I don't use Media Center, and I don't like WMP as a music manager...I only use it to watch videos.

That is true, it does play AAC files, but Xbox does not, and I like to play my music on my Xbox.

I run all my TV through Media Center with a cable card tuner so I prefer to have music, and everything else there too so I don't constantly have to switch programs and interfaces.
Plus, I just absolutely hate iTunes.

No album art WMP12
In WMP11 whenever I ripped an audio CD it would always update the album art for each CD. With WMP12 there is just notes with different colored backgrounds, is there anyway to have it show album art?
