    The images I used to see had file names that were similar to GUIDs (i.e. { lots of numerals } ).
    They were jpg files.


    Agreed.
    Yeah, I think some of those folder,jpg files will have numbers in the file name. folder_small_01010 or something? I took a quick look and didn't see any in my folders. I went to great pains to customize them a while back. One of the first things I do when launching MP is turn off the option to update them. I've had some really weird things happen, albums split in two etc. Album art changed, but only for some songs?

    EDIT: You have to uncheck "hide protected system files" to see some of them, I did that and saw a album art small,jpg.

    Hi guys thanks for all the help and advice.

    I think the problem was in WMP i think the problem is if this is possible as i am not sure.

    i think when i changed the artwork it was not removing the original artwork even after i deleted it and so there were more than one image embedded into the MP3 file

    The file played ok in wmp with the new artwork visible but then when i copied it to a new folder it reverted back to the original artwork.

    These track are quite old and i am not sure of the origin or were the original artwork came from or what it referred to.

    After altering some settings i file explorer i have a new problem when i click to play a mp3 track i now get two windows with the track one with the album artwork and on playing the track. and i have to close them both to carry on

    Hi i will try the iTunes way

    I am not having a lot of luck searching for album covers

    Can i ask what you mean by size C and is 300x300 pixels a good size every time i find a album cover i like and check the size when i download it the size gets smaller



    I have tried WMP and VLC
    c. means circa / about. I just searched for the album name & artist in Google images and picked a file around 300x300 pixels. I used Tagscanner to embed the album art jpg file in every music track and don't use the separate artwork file in the folder since my car seems to prefer this approach.

    These sort of incidents are why I hate "auto-helper" functions.

    These type of functions should always ask for permission before changing your files/system (and they should include a reminder to backup your data first).

    I used to have 1000s of the images I mentioned in my previous post.
    I purged them all a few years ago (2013?) and since I don't use WMP they haven't returned.

    I found an example and explanation:

    I agree it's WMP. I've been sorting out artwork to display properly in my car and initially only had embedded artwork in each MP3 file. All those other JPG files appeared after importing the files into WMP!
