Windows 7: What is "Libraries>Music>Unspecified?

What is "Libraries>Music>Unspecified?

When I view my Music Library in "Album View" (not Folder) I see a file at the end named, "Unspecified". It's full of album art, documents and full albums. Is this something I need? Can I delete it? I think this is the reason that some of my album artwork doesn't show up on the albums in "album view", I get a generic music note instead.

Help is appreciated!

i just checked and i see the same file, dont delete it . mine contains much more than albumart it contains cue files also.and some music tracks not sure why they are showing .will look further.
Edit:
i notice the music tracks in the unspecified folder are the same as the tracks that are in the unknown/ other folder in wmp in album tab. i think it may mean i have a bit more tagging to do.
Although i gave up on wmp a while ago and i use winamp now . i go to the music library (folder view) and select an album then use winamp. ( it opens on selecting "play all" )

I have checked the tags using MP3Tag and all looks good. I've compared one not showing album art in "album view" with another that does show album art in "album view" and I can't see anything that I'm missing in tags.

if in your case,the unspecified folder is only showing covers then i would still keep them as wmp probably looks to these pics for its albumart,

On the albums that I'm not seeing album art in "Album View", I see those folder.jpg's in Unspecified folder. So, still perplexed that they are not showing up on the albums in Library....

you could embed the image on the music files. and they will show albumart in wmp .
i embed images into the actual music files using mp3tag.

Already did that but didn't have any effect. But here's something strange: I had 10 albums not showing their album pic in Album View. Now I only have one....
