Album Artwork


Jun 30, 2008, 9:06 PM
Okay, so I imported a few of my CD's, and downloaded the album artwork and tagged the artwork to the proper cd's and songs. I sync my DARE to my PC to transfer the songs. The songs transfer, but no album artwork.

I did check out some other non Phone Scoop forums, where folks suggested to make the album artwork 65K or less in file size. I tried doing that and refreshing the files on my DARE but still no album artwork.

Next attempt is to delete the songs off the phone and re-add them to see if that does it.

If anyone knows of another way, or is using a program other than Rhapsody to get album artwork to transfer, PLEASE share.

drag and drop
set the dare as a mass storage device
just make sure the fielanme is not long for example if you have a song
akon feat jay-z - rap.mp3

rename it not
akon - rap.mp3

I downloaded Media Monkey and used that program to attach the artwork to the tracks, then reloaded the songs onto the phone with Rhapsody.

Is there any chance you can go over this process in more detail? MediaMonkey has a couple of different ways of attaching files and I'm not yet 100% successful with gettiung the art onto the Dare.

I'm using WMP to sync with the DARE, btw.

I created a folder under "My Pictures" called "Album Artwork".
You can rip the songs from whatever program, iTunes, Media Monkey, Rhapsody, etc. I use the mp3 format, not WMA
Add the files to your Media Monkey library. Then select all tracks on the album and right click and select "Auto Tag from Amazon". This should download the album artwork, and should ask you where to save it. Once you have the artwork, usually a jpeg file on your PC, make sure it is no larger than 65K in size.
Unselect the tracks, then select one of them and right click and go to "Properties" Go to the Album Art tab and delete whatever has been already selected. There should be a box in the lower left stating "apply to all tracks on the album". You want this box ...

DO you add the art to the tags or to the album folder (or both) in Media Monkey?

Jul 6, 2008, 1:01 PM
I add it to the tags, as long as the box "apply to all tracks on the album"is checked, all the songs will be treated the same.

OK. Well, it would appear that you and I are doing exactly the same thing. About 50% of my album art appears on the Dare. I shall have to investigate further.

Thanks for the help.

Seems like an awful lot of steps.

iPhone & iTunes sync this info without all this hassle.

I agree!!!

I have over 500 albums (8 gig expansion card) and this process would take several days to complete.

I cannot get iTunes (or any other program) to include the album art.

The Sync always adds a folder with sub directories of the albums. After this is done my phone (Dare) doesn't find any music.

I tried to move the music into the MyMusic directory but the phone still doesn't see the music files until I remove the sub directories (all music files on the directory root MyMusic).

I must being doing something wrong because this should be an easy thing to do.

Don't think this matters but...
I have been plugging the memory card into the PC then after the card is Sync'ed I plug it into the phone.

hey man did you use the free media monkey or the gold one?

Jul 12, 2008, 1:48 PM
I used the free edition

I still cant figure it out. Can someone write a full writeup on how to properly do it? I appreciate the help, thanks!

here is how i did it, but some dont work ☹️

essentially just go online and download all the album covers you want, make sure they are under 65k. i use google and search ".... album" find a pic about 300 x 300 and under 65k. save all of these to a folder, i named mine album art. take out your mem card and copy everything to a folder (make easy to find, like on desktop). delete all the music off the card. download media monkey. when it asks where to look, just pick the folder you made with your mem card music. once the list populates, right-click on the track and click 'properties'. in the tabs on top, one should say album art. click the tab. if something is already there, 'remove' it. if not, click 'add' find the folder with the album ar...
