Thanks again. Cache clearing had no effect, though. I didn't think it would as I'd only just downloaded that album and the picture was on that track from the start. I need that folder to be shared...

Hi Callender and thanks for that. TagScanner doesn't think there's a picture on that track either. Never mind though, I'm not unduly bothered about it.

Hello Beowulf1 and thanks for the suggestion. It didn't work, unfortunately. I then ran CCleaner but all it did was remove the picture from the thumbnail.

I've not seen it referred to anywhere as a USB3 device so it probably isn't. Same story in both of my PC's USB3 ports. Never mind, not a big issue. Thank you for your time, much appreciated.

Hi AddRAM. Yes, I've unplugged whenever it's been necessary. It just bugs me that the 'router homepage' method has stopped functioning. It's the standard ISP-supplied router (TalkTalk).
