Windows 7: WMP12 add album art = hidden file problem

WMP12 add album art = hidden file problem

To put it as simply as possible in Windows Media Player 12, when i try to paste album art to an album, the album gets deleted from the Media player, when i check in the actual album folder in libraries the folder itself still exists but it has changed all my files within that folder to 'hidden' so that now i can't see them or play them via WMP12. Is there a fix for this? I know a few other friends who have had the same problem and it's becoming very frustrating!

Help please :-(

No album art WMP12
In WMP11 whenever I ripped an audio CD it would always update the album art for each CD. With WMP12 there is just notes with different colored backgrounds, is there anyway to have it show album art?
