ml_iPod does not show album art for ONE set of albums

I have one album on my computer that shows album art just fine (folder.jpg in each folder). In windows, the file structure is as follows:
D:\MP3\Rush\Rush In Rio\Disk 1
D:\MP3\Rush\Rush In Rio\Disk 2
D:\MP3\Rush\Rush In Rio\Disk 3

There is a folder.jpg in each of those folders with the album art. It shows fine in Winamp. I've removed the music from the Winamp Library AND the iPod multiple times and re-synced it to the iPod using ml_ipod. No dice. ALL of my album art on the entire iPod (classic 160, by the way) shows correctly EXCEPT for this ONE album. I see each disk under Artists > Rush or in Cover Flow with the iTunes eighth note.

What the heck is going on?! EVER change I've made to any other album as it pertains to album art is perfect. I even renamed all of the tracks with the suggested mp3tag editor (after adding art) and re-added it to my libary and the iPod. NOTHING changed.

I need some more information to gain some insight. Maybe a debugging archive helps, create it with
"RightClick on the iPod icon in the Media Library-->Help-->Create archive for bug report"
immediately after you transfered some of the songs of this album (remove them from iPod first) and upload it to http://stashbox.org for me... Thanks

You should have been able to just attach it. I doubt the archive was over 200k...

Didn't think of that. Just tried to attach it, though. Too big.

Thanks for the archive. It shows the reason:
For these tracks, the artwork is taken from the ID3 tags. The files have embedded artwork, and that takes precedence over the folder.jpg. If you want to use folder.jpg instead, simply uncheck the option to use ID3 tags in the cover art preferences, then use "Refresh album art" on the songs (or delete them and re-upload them.

So remove the folder.jpg or don't use the art on the ID3 tags? Will have to look into that when I get home.

No, leave the folder.jpg's alone. Go into ml_iPod prefs and deselect the option to get covers from ID3 tags. Then delete the offending tracks from the iPod and retransfer them.

I took an alternate approach of removing the covers from the files themselves...works perfectly now! Thanks guys!
