You need to be sure that the album cover data is included in the track tags when you ripped the mp3. You can't add it to the mp3 itself afterward.

thanks

On, mine I have a few that ended up without the album art. I worried about it at first, but then I realized that I will be having the map displayed as I'm driving not the mp3 player screen, so for me, it wasn't a big deal.

Have you tried playing them in Windows Media and clicking find album info to add it.
It might work as it adds the picture to my file folder in the hardrive when i load new tunes, just a thought.

Memory Issues

You may better off without the album artwork since you will save memory space for POI's and more essential content

album art

You can add album art with an MP3 tagging program. CNET has several free MP3 tag edtiors. I was able to find the album art online and add it using the tagging program.

See this link for one of these programs:

use a free editor

I use Audio Shell, very easy to edit ID3 Tags and to add album art OR a personal jpg totally unassociated with the mp3.

Audio Shell

After installing Audio Shell:
Navigate to your mp3 file, then right click on the file, select properties and you will then see two additional Audio Shell tabs. Very easy to use.

I'm using "TAg&Rename" tool

I'm using "TAg&Rename" tool (www.softpointer.com) that is able to load pictures and tags to any mp3 files reading the info from Freedb or Amazon.

Very easy and fast!

If I've understood right you need ID3 tags editor. You should pay attention at what version is used in mp3 that you want to edit. If you need examples download a few free mp3 files from http://chemp3.com or other music search engine.

mp3 Album Art

You CAN add album art to a ripped mp3. I don't know if there is a way to add it before you have an mp3. If your GPS uses SD cards, that is a better place to put mp3 files because they don't take away from GPS memory.

iTunes is a free database program that manages music files, including mp3 files. It will add album art to existing music, including mp3 files. You have to open an account with iTunes Music Store for it to work, but you don't have to buy anything.

Roxio Creator 2010 Pro also will add album art to mp3 files stored on your PC or an SD card. It is a good commercial product.

I'm sure there are many more programs that will add album art. I don't use Media Monkey, but you could also check to see if that will add it in the free version.

I personally recommend MP3Tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/index.html). Its interface is easy to use, plus it has a nice easy batch rename feature based upon the tag.
