    Ipods artwork and crap mb interface

    MB spec is jpg. Used png but no diff in missing artwork. Problem is that URL tag. Found an easier way is to use MP3tag (freeware) to strip out ALL the tags and than paste back the ones you need. That works well.

    Ipods artwork and crap mb interface

    Hi. Some of you may have followed my odd posts since I bought my C180 3 years ago. Never one to give up I have finally solved the problem of missing artwork -- and it was in front of my eyes the whole time. So, use a USB stick and you get all the artwork. Read it in and then use the ipod and you...

    I have SD cards with ALL UK fixed cameras (not those sly ones just gone into service on the M25 to steal even more money). Easy to install- Command only with SD card slot. £19.99 each. Audio and Visual alerts. All cameras shown on maps as of 2012.

    iPods, Artwork (not showing) etc..

    If you copy all of the itunes music files only to a usbstick you will see all the artwork that is embedded in the file. If you examine a file with a hex editor or any other similar tool you can find the image data. In itunes when images are added by the user they are indeed embedded. I agree...

    Hello. I put all of iTunes onto a USB stick and I can see the artwork with that. Don't see why I can't now - the audio manual shows it. I will get back to the MB Stealer
