Getting album art

How do you get album art to show up while you play your music?

  • GreenGriffin Feb 22, 2008

    I too am unsure of how to do this. I assumed that having the album art in the folder with the music would work (in the same way it has on other MP3 players I have), but it did not automatically recognise it.

    Any solutions?

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?

SOURCE: Album Art will not Transfer

WELL I HAVE THE E270 I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. IN ANY FOLDER TAKE ANY JPEG THEN COPY PAST THE SAME JPEG IN THE SAME FOLDER THEN RENAME THE JPEG " ALBUM ART" THEN DRAG AND DROP OR COPY PAST IN THE DESIRED FILE YOU WISH THE JPEG AS A ALBUM ART. EXAMPLE: HOW TO TURN ANY JPEG INTO ALBUM ART!!! FILE: MY PICTURES * JPEG: MONEY.JPEG * COPY: MONEY.JPEG * PAST: MONEY.JPEG * RENAMW: MONEY.JPEG TO ALBUM ART * COPY: ALBUM ART TO SANSA E200 * DATA * MUSIC * COPY TO ANY MUSIC FILE YOU WISH * DISCONECT * REFRESH DATABASE * YOU READY TO GO.

How can I upload album art onto a philips gogear vibe for all my artists? I have album art inside my folders and i had itunes embed the art into the files when i uploaded them; however the art only shows...


There are 3 possible ways in getting the album art for your music album.
  1. Album art may be obtained from the online Music CD database that Windows Media Player uses.
    Note: Not all music albums have album art available in the online CD database.
  2. From the online music store where you purchased your songs or albums, the album art may be downloaded along with your purchase.
  3. You may also create your own album art by transferring your favorite jpg photo into the selected album folder and rename it to Album Art.jpg.
To download album art from the online database and transfer to the player.
  1. Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Launch Windows Media Player.
  3. Go to Tools> Options> Player.
  4. Make sure the "Enable picture support for devices" check box is selected.
  5. Click the Apply, then the OK buttons.
  6. Select the "RIP" tab on the task menu bar.
  7. Insert your music CD into the CD drive of your computer. The Windows Media Player will take a few seconds to show the content of the CD on the display.
  8. Click "Find Album Info". The Player accesses the database hosted by WindowsMedia.com and displays information about the album in the Album Information pane. The album art will be shown if available.(Note: For some music CD, album art may not be found in any of the online database.)
  9. Click Finish to update all the information about your album and show it in the Rip pane.
  10. Connect your Device to the computer.
  11. Select the tracks that you would like to rip by clicking in the check b ox next to the track.
  12. Click the Rip music button to start ripping the music CD.
  13. Once the tracks are finished being ripped to the library, go to the Media library and select the songs that you have just ripped.
  14. Add them to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  15. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  16. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

To create your own album art and transfer it to the Device
  1. In Windows Media Player , right click on the song you want to update the album art of.
  2. Select "Advanced Tag Editor" option.
  3. In the screen that pops up , select the "Pictures" tab.
  4. Use the drop down list to make sure that the type of picture you add is the Cover (front).
  5. Click on "Add" to associate a picture as the Album art for the song and all the songs in that album.
  6. Add this (and other songs from the same album) to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  7. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  8. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

Hi, the ipod on my iphone plays the same song unless I change it


The problem is that your iPod is currently set to "Repeat One" meaning that it will continuously play the same song until you tell it otherwise. To resolve this, play the current song and you should see some type of album art on the screen or a music note if no album art is available. At the top of the screen there should be a progress bar showing you how far into the song you currently are, if this is not visible tap once on the album art and it should appear. You will notice an icon in the lower left that looks like two arrows pointing to the tail of the other arrow, it should currently be blue with a small "1" in the lower left of it. Tap this icon once and your iPod will exit the "Repeat One" mode and will now play the next song after the current one finishes. Hope this helps!

My sandisk sansa e260 mp3 player wont trun on it goes to the start up screen and thin keeps repeting that screen how can i fix this does any1 know?


Hi, the Sansa E260 is a portable MP3 player released by SanDisk in 2004. Several problems may cause the E260 to not function as intended from time to time. Common problems that occur are the device freezing, album art not appearing on the screen when a song is playing, pictures not filling the screen size and missing information on the separate tracks. You can troubleshoot the device and fix many of these common problems without the need of a service technician.

Reset
1. The Sansa E260 may freeze or function in other unexpected ways from time to time. This generally occurs when the unit's software has developed an error. Reset the device to clear the error and return the device to normal working operation. A unit reset is similar to rebooting your computer. You won't lose any data stored on your device.

To reset the E260, press and hold the "Power/Menu" button for about 15 seconds. The device will be forced to power down, during which the error will be cleared. You can restart the E260 as normal once the reset is complete.
Album Art Does Not Display
2. The E260 supports viewing album art on the display screen during the playing of a song. You may find that your album art is not showing up on the display when music is playing on the device. To fix this, make sure the associated album art file is in the same folder as the song being played. You will need to connect the E260 into your computer to move the album art files into the music folder.
Photos Aren't Full-Screen
3. Photos displayed on the E260 will not show up as full-screen shots if they are not cropped to the correct dimensions. The E260 software does not support stretching pictures to fit the full screen. To ensure your photographs will display on the full screen, crop the images to 128x64 in photo-editing software prior to transferring the image on the E260.
Unknown Artist or Album
4. The E260 displays information about each song using the ID3 tags associated with each track. ID3 tags hold information such as the artist name, album name, track number, year it was released and other information. If the E260 shows an artist or album as unknown, the information in the ID3 tag was not filled in. You can insert information into the ID3 tags from your computer.

To change the ID3 information, right-click on the music file and choose "Properties." Click on the "Summary" tab and choose "Advanced." The ID3 fields will display in the window. Insert any of the missing information and click "OK." When you upload the song onto your E260, the newly inserted information will show up in the display.

Hope it helped...

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 does not transfer with music on my sandisk mp3 player


Go to the sytem Settings menu and go to this option:
Display Art in Lists
Enabling this feature displays a small image of the song album cover, audiobook
cover, and photos when scrolling through list of these items.
1. Scroll down to Display Art in Lists and select it.
2. Use thumbwheel to switch between On (enable) and Off (disable).

If changing this option to enable fials to resolve the issue, the solution is a bit painful: You will have to manually add the artwork to each single song within an album in Windows Media Player 11, delete the song that is missing the artwork off your sansa, and re-add the songs again after you are done manually ediitng the artwork.

Manually add album art (WMP 11)
1. Run WMP.
2. Click Library on the top bar.
3. Select and right-click the file(s) you wish to update and select Advanced Tag Editor.
4. Click the Picture tab, then click Add.
5. Navigate to the image you wish to use for album art then click Open.
6. Click Apply then OK.

No album Graphics


THe Operating system that runs the MP3 player (like windows runs a computer except it running a small music player) doesn't show album art it just shows the disc spinning

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 not loading


I not entirely 100% sure, but the album art is only supported with WMA, as the album art image is embedded inside of the wma files themselves and not stored separately on the mp3 player.

There is no album art appearing


If it was never associated with the music when you downloaded the music, then there is nothing to show and therefore, wont show.
