i think we are having a hard time understanding each other, perhaps a language barrier?

currently, winamp does not retrieve album art from the internet at all. all it will do, is display existing album art.

if you properly deleted the temp files and art cache winamp uses while winamp was closed, and you did what i posted above, meaning you highlighted all your art icons, right clicked, and clicked refresh album art, all you should be able to see is art that is either embedded, OR in the folder the files are in.

if you NEED art, thats an entirely different thing.

what i can't tell from your posts, is exactly what your problem is?

is winamp displaying the wrong art for some of your albums?

and/or

do you want ALL your files to have ONLY embedded art, and no art in the folder?

if what u want, is to embed all your art, and remove all your folder art, i would use mp3tag which can automate a lot of that for you, AND it CAN retrieve art from the internet.

ok, we might be making a little progress here.

here is what i would suggest to you:

for now, do NOT embed any more album art. if you want to later, fine, but for now, don't do it.

arrange all your music files on the hard disk to be one folder per CD. so don't have folders with like 50 songs in them. try to make it one folder per CD / album.

then make sure every folder with music files in it also has a Folder.jpg album artwork file. you can get them from google (just drag and drop the image into the folder from the browser and rename it Folder.jpg) or you can find other apps to do it, like mp3tag. (u will have to play with the options to make sure the app is saving and placing folder art, and not embedding it)

if u do all that, then rescan the folders and refresh the art like i said above, it will fix all or almost all of your issues, and anything not fixed CAN be figured out and fixed.

That's great. I assume u mean showing correctly in winamp?

Did u embed all the art or put it in folders? Or both?

So now all that's left is to straighten musicf8 out, if he is so inclined...?

Thanks for following up on me MrSinatra. It does sound like a tagging issue which I am sure will be cleared out once I finish cleaning up my library. It's one of those issues I notice but don't care to act on since it doesn't effect my listening experience. It will probably be something that will be fixed when I get to it

I embbeded the album cover to MP3's though the just having the jpg in the folder would probably of saved on space then again, 16gbs of mp3 is nothing to worry about.

At some point the OCD will kick in about this and I will fix do this for my Misc folder of mp3 but that this like 200+ song from all diffrent bands which would take alot long to put albums too seeing then do batches of albums at once.

like Musicf8 said it dont effect the music listen experience, it more of cosmetic issue

Would been nice if there was way I could config MP3 tag to just pull album covers instead of, artist,album, but the matching name of file to name in mp3 tag was most simple once noticed it, I did few albums before I noticed that if they were not matched names were mixed, so i had to go back and fix that.

once your tags are correct, mp3tag has functions that allow you to create proper ..\albumartist\album\file.mp3 folder structures automatically. it will move the files and all that. u can also have mp3tag use folder art, and place it there, instead of embeds.
