Album art not matching song

I am having a problem with the album art not matching the song even when I have selected the appropriate album art.

For instance, for the song "Highway Star" by Deep Purple, I selected the "Machine Head" album cover. I clicked on OK to save the changes but when I go back in to view the file info, the album art is always changed back to the cover art for "The Best of Deep Purple".

This happens with various other songs as well.

Put the cover file in the same folder as the audio file named %album%.jpg. Replace the %album% with the exact album name as shown in Winamp.
Please note, it seems like the original cover for the audio file is embedded in it, so you cannot change the cover (yet).

Yes, the cover file is in the same folder AND named per your above instructions. However, it still wants to show the other album cover even after saving the changes.

Then its possible that the other cover album is embedded in the audio file. To test this, copy the audio file to another location and then play it in Winamp. If it still shows the other cover then its proved it has the cover embedded. Otherwise please check the names of the album and the image file. They should exactly be the same.
