Updating media information and album art


Source: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itprogeneral/thread/3552ec2d-d510-49ec-985c-1fc04c3d6da6 The problem is caused by Windows Media Player and not by Windows.

I've just changed the settings on Windows Media Player.

My problem is similar to this one but no solution has been posted.Now each song or album has the picture I want it to have.The ID3v2.x specification allows an .mp3 file to contain numerous embedded images (Front cover, Back Cover, Band, Band Live, Band Logo, Leaflet Page, etc).) I also found a page advising to delete these files, create new empty ones (0 bytes) and deny-write them by ACL.This way, Windows Media Player falls back to using the embedded art.This way the If you enable "Show hidden files" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" in folder options and then manually delete any images but the "correct art", it should use the "correct art".
