Album artwork of .m4a files do not appear in windows explorer
I have a huge collection of .m4a itunes plus music and mp3 recently a strange problem arised when i moved my whole music folder from one drive to other in smae hard disk.i dont think this caused this issue where my mp3 album artwork show fine but the artwork of .m4a files do not appear in windows explorer.
This is how some of them show when in folder view
But when i enter into the folder no artwork
i can see the artwork when playing in windows media player or any other music player
I tried this method and all options are perfect with no change
Try and delete you thumbnail cache,
Click the start button on your taskbar, type in the little explorer box, disk cleanup and hit the enter key,
Once windows completes, check the thumbnails section and temporary files sections, and click on okay,
Confirm Yes delete these files.
Reopen your music library,
Click on organize on the top left,
Go to the view section and uncheck the top box, always show icons and never thumbnails, click on the top Apply to folders button,
Then click on apply and okay.
Adjust the thumbnails sizes, hold the ctrl key and use your mouse wheel to increase there sizes.
These steps didn't work
and also tried this fix
If the problem is in shmedia.dll , then its time for some repairs.
1 Download Shmedia.dll OR ( Direct Link )
2 Extract and Copy Shmedia.dll to %windir%\system32\ (c:\windows\system32\ )
3 start > cmd >R.Click>Run as administrator
4 copy and paste these commands in order
shmedia.dll was missing so i downloaded it and registered by above method but still i cant get .m4a thumbnails working
i can see in registry where shell extension option is missing some of the file types HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
is anything to do with this
help is appreciated Thank you

way to repair the files
Instances are there when our audio files gets corrupted, its ok if the file is available easily by using the backups, or by using the restoring process but what we have no back ups and no restoring point nothing to recover our data. Not to worry because there is one way to get the file in proper format that is by repairing it. In order to repair mp4 music files you need to download the trail version software from internet. But as there are many versions on internet better to go with the trial version download link of the software .
