Windows 7: Forcing WMP to use internal album art -- possible?

Forcing WMP to use internal album art -- possible?

I need to force media player to use the internally stored album art and not use the folder.jpg file. For the way I have my music organized, I keep more than one album in a folder and WMP ends up with the wrong album art. Possible?? Thanks.

As far as I know, WMP uses only one album art, which is the first one in the queue. A few other music players those I have used behaves in the same way.

It would be best if you tag the album with the appropriate (that one you want) album art only. In that case, if the Folder.jpg is a different image, WMP will show the tagged album art, and not the folder.jpg.
