|copernicium112||Log in over at syncmyride.com and check "SYNC UPDATES". You should see it there.|

What is this 3.5.1 MFT update that you guys speak of? Is this something new? Sorry, I haven't touched MFT in the way of updates since I got my car 8 months ago, so I want to make sure I'm not missing out on anything.

Also, my album art shows up. But it's probably not worth the risk for you.

This is the thread I've been waiting for! Have avoided the upgrade to 3.5.1 for this very reason. I realize it's a simple thing, but it's one 'Ooooo' factor I get when someone rides with me. Plus I love seeing the old album art myself.
Would've never dreamed I'd see James Gang, Uriah Heep, or Wishbone Ash artwork displayed on my car. (did I date myself there?)

|copernicium112||What flavor iPod are you using feta? BTW Gracenote caused me problems going all the way back to the 2.11 days so I have just always made it a rule make sure it off after any revision/update. My 120gb classic that I have been using since I got the car is still displaying album art (with the exception of the occassional, and so far seemingly very rare, hiccups that I mentioned above).|

|feta_mgp||Thanks for the input. Never had this occur before v3.5.1, so it's baffling to me, but I'll try a few other things out.|

Album art has always been a pain, but I've found that if you edit the album art embedded in the ID3 tag so that it's no more than 500x500 pixels and less than about 50kb, then most times it'll work well after a re-index. I just added music to my Zune HD yesterday, and with the original album art (800x800) from the Zune marketplace, I got the same Gracenote placeholders. Exchanging them with the smaller 500x500 (or less) files generated better results.
I used MP3Tag to modify the tags. It'll find new art for you from Amazon and save it to tags, but you have to do it manually for each album. Musicbrainz Picard might do it automatically for your whole collection, but I don't know for sure. I do know that Ford had "Sync my iTunes" as well, but have no experience with that.

Mine is all the time. Everytime I listen to the iPod I have the generic placeholders. You can't turn the art "off" in MFT 3.5.1 only specify whether the primary source of art is gracenote or the mp3 player.
I may just try turning gracenote off and reindexing like you said.

|kevinxb||I had the album art turned off before 3.5.1 because none of my music has album art attached. I can't find the option anymore, so I seem to be stuck with the genre/music symbol. I don't even know where it gets the genre info from because most of my songs don't have a genre in the ID3 tag.|
