Windows 7: How to remove album art cover in mp3?

Well anyway I can't get to that site as it's blocked. Tried playing the mp3 that I removed cover art from in one of my music players and I get no images - no jpg's either - hidden or not.

Maybe WMP caches the thumbnails? That's just a guess. More research needed.

Re: Blocked site. Probably the whole domain is blocked due to misuse by others.

Check for ideas here but be careful if trying any of the solutions that suggest deleting folders in AppData. Personally I would,'t try without a backup.

album art - Windows Media Player 12 shows wrong cover art when playing - Super User

Maybe try the suggestion here:

Open command prompt in your music folder and try:

attrib -h -s Folder.jpg
attrib -h -s AlbumArtSmall.jpg
del Folder.jpg AlbumArtSmall.jpg

Callender if your trying to rebuild WMP cache you just delete everything under C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player and restart WMP and let it rebuild the library

Well as far as I can work out you can delete those embedded jpgs using a script but as soon as you launch Windows Media Player it seems that it will download them again. See the thread here:

Prevent Windows Media Player Album Art Download - Microsoft Community

Using a small utility on my machine disables what I call suspicious or unwanted microsoft connections and built into that are these WMP tweaks. Like I said though - I don't use WMP!

Thanks for the info. Seems it will re-download metadata anyway. And I don't have WMP so I can't test. Sorry.

this might sound crazy...

i right clicked the file.. went to properties... in details i removed all the unwanted information... when applied, i think, this new information is saved as tag...

so.. with this new 'tag', when i opened the file in mp3tag, it didnt show it as bad tag anymore and both mp3tag and tagscan also started showing alum art in the box..

after this i could remove art with mp3tag, tagscan or taghycardia...

i also tried initially by clearing wmp cache... actually it contained all the album arts as jpgs... once i deleted and songs were played again, they started appearing again in the cache...

so.. thanks everyone for spending your time in helping... thanks again...
