Windows 7: problem with album art on my MP3/Folders in windows

problem with album art on my MP3/Folders in windows

I have an Aerosmith Great Hits folder. When I select that folder, it displays the "Big Ones" covers.

But when I open that folder and select the songs they display the red Aerosmoth "Logo" Cover. (this is the cover i want)

Those MP3 files use to have the "Big Ones" as the album art, but I recently changed them to have the "Red Logo" cover. The files changed correctly but the folder they are located in still displays the old "Big Ones" cover.

I found a way to fix it but it is kind of a pain in the ass. If create a new Areosmith Greatest Hits folder and move my MP3 files into that, then the cover at on the folder matches the cover art on the files. But is there an easier way to fix this bug?

If you set your folder to "show hidden files and folders" you'll see several image files like AlbumArt_large.jpg, AlbumArt_small.jpg, and folder.jpg. Delete those, and your folder art should subsequently display correctly.

I did that but at first it didn't work. I also had to uncheck “Hide protected operating system files” to make the album art show up.
