Do you have album art stored for those albums? Winamp can only display the album art under one of three conditions:
1) Have an image labeled "folder.jpg" in the folder of the album. This way, Winamp will connect that cover art to any songs in the album folder.
2) Embed the album art within each song's tag. Using MP3Tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) is a great, free program for doing this.
3) Right-click on an album in the album art view, and select "Get Album Art". Winamp's Cover Art Downloader will then attempt to retrieve a suitable artwork match for the album.
By following at least one of these methods, album art should start displaying correctly in Winamp. :)
Hope that helps,

cs188, Winamp will show an image for a cover based on more than that. First it will try embedded covers, then it will fall back to images in the file's folder. It will look for images named in this fashion, in this order:
Embedded into tags
%album% - images named exactly the same as the album name with correct character conversions (Winamp downloads covers as files named this way)
*.nfo - images with the same name as an nfo file in the folder
fredick, you need to have an images which matched the above criteria for Winamp to show it as the cover for a file. If you are looking to download covers you can use Winamp's cover downloader, just right-click on a 'blank' cover and choose get album art. You can also download covers manually from Amazon or Google, you can also use programs such as Album Art Aggregator and perhaps MP3Tag.
If Winamp should be showing covers for these tracks can you please state where the covers are, what they are named as and the album name if you are trying a %album% cover.
