Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

Album art troubles!

I've had this zen for about five months, but I'm having some issues with album art. When I drag JPEGS into the blank space in the Creative Zen explorer window, it doesn't add. I've also tried syncing from Media Monkey and it still won't associate the art with my files. Any ideas?

How to get album art?

  1. Click on "Advanced" which is found at the top of the screen. Select "Get Album Artwork" from the drop down menu. It will ask you "Are you sure you want to get album artwork?" Hit "Get Album Artwork". Before you do that, you can select "Don't ask me again" if you don't want this to pop up in the future.
  2. Wait until it is done searching for the artwork. A window will pop up saying that it either found all artwork or they didn't. If they did, then great, your done, plug in your iPod and start jamming. But if they didn't, you can still jam away, but check the song title, album name, artist, and genre to see if you got it typed in correctly. Type in what they are supposed to be and try again.
  3. If they still can't find it, then you can add them manually. Look at the link below to find out how to do it manually.
If Itunes wont find the art work:
  1. Find the artwork for the album on the internet. Try using Wikipedia. Click on the artwork to get a larger image. If you can't find it there, I'm sure you can find it using Google images. Anyway, once you find it drag it to your desktop. Make sure it is on there before you continue.
  2. Next, you need to highlight the songs that are in the album you are getting artwork for. To highlight multiple songs, click on the first song and then while holding the shift key click on the last song. To highlight multiple songs that aren't grouped together, click on all the songs while holding the command key on a Mac and ctrl key on a PC.
  3. Now go to "File" then "Get Info". A window will pop up asking you if you want to edit multiple items. Click "Yes". Another window will pop up labeled "Multiple Item Information". You will notice a box on the right hand side of the window that says "Artwork". Click and drag the artwork that is on your desktop into that box. It should appear there. When it does, select "Ok".
  4. When it is done processing, plug your iPod into the computer, sync it, and take your iPod out to start listening to your improved music.

No Album Art

Was there a picture within the music album folder? You can manually put it there by opening the album folder and insert a picture of your choice along with the music.
It should recognize the picture and appear when that particular album or song within the album plays

Album Art not showing up on player

Connect mp3 player to computer
Open Windows Media Player
Go to Sync tab
A list of the songs on your mp3 player should show up
Right click the songs, and go to advanced tag editor - change the album art for each song

One more thing to keep in mind for the Sansa e200 series:
For correct Album Work functionality, the album art and associated music file may
need to be located in the same folder. See preloaded content as an example.

Album art

u can use the other mode to put the album art on it too....
just drag and drop the album art using wmp 11...
if that doesn't work the slow way is to use iriver plus 3 and add it manually.
i suggest organising your files by placing albums into individual folders with their album art...
u can also use other programs like itunes or winamp to add album art...

C cover art does not transfer to my zen vision m, only the music tracks transfer

A few possibilities. Go to,/?St=224,E=0000000000373151655,K=1742,Sxi=15,Case=obj(8179),Kb=ww_english_add,VARSET=ws:

for more details

Creative ZEN players do not currently support album art from Rhapsody version 4.0.
Album art is either embedded in a track, or exists as a thumbnail image in a separate file, allowing one album art file to be associated with an album. Currently, Rhapsody only supports album art embedded in the track. Future versions of Rhapsody are expected to support thumbnail versions.
Creative Media Explorer or Windows Media Player 10 or 11 can be used to transfer music purchased from Rhapsody to a player with album art included.

Album Art is supported by Creative ZEN, Creative ZEN V Plus, ZEN V, Vision:M and ZEN Vision players.
The ZEN Vision (PF1150) requires a firmware update for Album Art. You can download the updated firmware:
If you experience any difficulty transferring Album Art with Windows Media Player 10 or 11, to ZEN Vision:M, delete WMPInfo.xml (see below), and then transfer the tracks again.

Getting album art

I used MediaMonkey I have successfully encoded over 1000 mp3 with the album artwork interlaced in the ID3 tag. The only issue I have now is that some of the artwork shows up and some doesn't? If I open the same music in a media player that supports album artwork it shows up fine?
