    I buy all my MP3s from Amazon. I know you can get free music from some other source, but the quality and ease of download make it worth the price to me. All the music I buy there has the album art with it, and shows on my 8300. What device do you have?

    In the past I ripped my music with Microsoft Windows Media Player, however I kept having the troubles you are having, until someone suggested I use Apple iTunes.

    Without going into the technical explanation I was given (I can give it to you if you really want...), it seems that Windows Media Player rarely attaches the album art to the file as metadata (ie. Writes it directly into the audio file), but iTunes does...

    Since I started using iTunes, I've never had this problem!


    iTunes is a free download and despite popular belief, you don't need to own an Apple iPod, Apple iPhone or Apple computer to use iTunes:

    It's either embedding in the ID3 tag of the file, or if you have the cover inside an album folder as a jpg (usually folder.jpg or cover.jpg) it should pickup on it and display it.

    I'm this same problem. So by using iTunes to put my music on my curve it would have the album art with it ?

    Windows Media Player displays the cover art from an online source, and saves it in the (computer's) cache for when you are offline - this is why the cover art often isn't transferred when using Windows Media Player (if you manually add it, it sometimes works).

    When iTunes downloads the album artwork automatically, you should copy the album artwork (right-click on a PC), manually edit the track information (I think it's a right-click on the track name) and paste the album artwork you just copied into the relevant field - doing this will force iTunes to write the album artwork into the file as "metadata", so that when the file is transferred between devices, the album artwork is also.

    Download Media Monkey. It includes a feature that allows you to apply album art to the ID3 tag.

    i think it depends what kind of program puts the art on. i no Windows Media Player's album art shows on the BB.

    That's the route I went. Works great.

    Hey you might want to check out "FlipSide" - it allows you to download "missing" album artwork OTA (over-the-air; wirelessly on your BlackBerry, without a computer)!

    Thus far, FlipSide has been able to find ALL my "missing" album artwork, including for some "Australian-specific" albums (digital audio players often don't find artwork for local or obscure albums)!

    At the very least, you'd do yourself a favour to check out the free trial:
    http://electricpocket.com/flipside/mobileindex.php

    I intend to use it until the trial finishes, but I'm pretty confident I'll buy it...
