Windows 7: Album art is the wrong picture?

Album art is the wrong picture?

Well, I have Windows Media Center, and I haven't messed with it enough to fix the album art. I have the album art. It is correct for most albums, but for some, it is defaulted to some 3 Doors Down album cover. I really don't get that. Well, I went into the Player, and updated the albums, it fixed it on Windows Media Player, but not on Media Center, I would just thought it would updated both. But it doesn't. Does anyone have an idea? I've been goggling, and only found how to fix it for Media Player, which doesn't help me.

Thanks in advanced,

Hmm...I might just switch to WMP12..I thought about it, and WMC does make it look a bit cooler, but WMP12 just functions better, and in my opinion, it's easier to navigate. But thanks for the help anyway, I might keep this for my father, he is in love with WMC and wants to make it "perfect"

What's wrong with the picture?
Check the picture attached. As you probably have seen, the picture isn't exactly subtle. Two very contradictory things. It looks like I'm really connected, but windows doesn't show it. It shows up in the Network and Sharing too. If I enable the Wireless adapter, it's pretty much the same,...

WMP 12 displays the WRONG album art for songs
I have WMP 12 set to display album art for mp3 files. If I play one song, the correct album art appears. But then when I play another song, the previous song's album art appears. It doesn't matter if the subsequent songs have their own album art or not. Today, I opened up WMP and played a song,...
