    Hi,

    Has anyone ever encountered these before:


    'AlbumArtSmall'; I think Windows self-creates a system-file artwork circa 200x200?

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Yes, Windows Media player creates these things automatically, sometimes even replacing your good artwork. Turn windows media player off and don't let it touch your files! (I thought you already did this).

    Paul,
    I've seen AlbumArtSmall.jpg and AlbumArtLarge.jpg files. They are created by Windows Media Player from what I remember. I think I disabled Windows Media Player to stop them from being created.

    Thanks GaryG,

    Bloody pain! I only noticed these over the weekend. I think they are hidden, but I would rather they were not there in the first place. Maybe I am stuck with them now?

    Hi Garym,

    Correct, I don't used WMP. But somehow it must have got its claws on them! I remember having a discussion on here about uninstalling WMP, and I am sure I was told it's not possible (because it's baked into Win_10).

    ... I don't know if deleting it from 'X86' would help?

    Damn box must have 're-checked' itself during a Win_Update or something!? I definitely made a point of disabling it sometime ago.

    Microsoft is known for messing with settings for its software when it comes to Windows updates.

    I am certain this is what must have happened. I even tried totally disabling Win-Updates, but they still trickle though!

    WOW! This thread's huge! I've read just a little and learned a lot. Lot more to read.

    Wanted to get the expert's opinions on my personal naming methodology before I get too much further along with ripping.... let me know if you see any problems with my choices. Since some of my players don't support "sort" functionality (JRiver, old iPod; Astell & Kern), I've opted to list 'last-name-first' manually and using 'tilde' & 'vertical slashes':

    *1: John Abercrombie Dave Holland Jack DeJohnette - "Gateway 2"
    Album Artist: Abercrombie, John
    Artist: Abercrombie ~ John Abercrombie | Dave Holland | Jack DeJohnette
    Album: Gateway 2

    *2: Jeff Babko with Jeff Coffin & Vinnie Colaiuta - "Mondo Trio"
    Album Artist: Babko, Jeff
    Artist: Babko ~ Jeff Babko | Jeff Coffin | Vinnie Colaiuta
    Album: Mondo Trio

    *3: Chick Corea Elektric Band - "Eye Of The Beholder"
    Album Artist: Corea, Chick
    Artist: Corea ~ Chick Corea Elektric Band
    Album: Eye Of The Beholder

    Thoughts, opinions or considerations? Appreciate all comments=)

    Hi Theleb_Kaarna,

    I am pleased to hear you have found this thread useful.

    I am not sure if my tagging protocol would be of use to you, but out of interest here are some (Chick Corea CD) screenshots I just made:




    They may or may not be of help.

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Re: Tags, Tags, and more Tags ...

    Greetings from across the pond!

    Hi Paul, appreciate you taking the time to share some screenshots. It is useful to me to see the various tagging protocols other enthusiasts use which ultimately serves to remind me there isn't just 'one right way'. I'm personally finding it difficult to commit to a specific methodology for how I want to handle tags (namely Album Artist, Artist & Album). For instance I stated in my original post that I opted to not use Sort functionality, and not name artists 'first-name-first' etc, but am wondering if I might regret that later (don't expect you to respond to this, just thinking out loud). Also, while I like the appearance of the "vertical Slash" ( | ), using it takes up additional spaces (with a space on either side, hence making the Artist Name longer). Maybe I'm thinking too much into it, I dunno.

    So going back to the 'last-name-first' method (which I'm still leaning towards), I'm now considering a couple different ways. So for example: Béla Fleck & The Flecktones I'd maybe write "Fleck ~ Béla Fleck & The Flecktones" or "Fleck, Béla, & The Flecktones" which would also work. But for The Jeff Beck Group the second method doesn't flow as well IMO. So: "Beck ~ The Jeff Beck Group" works OK, but not "Beck, Jeff, Group, The" or "Beck, Jeff, The, Group". As such, I'm still leaning towards my original method, though it's obvious drawback is using an additional (and somewhat redundant) name/word that's repeated plus a tilde (ie "Fleck ~ Béla Fleck & The Flecktones" - where "Fleck" appears twice in the name). I've also considered doing a single letter/character as the lead-in (ie "F ~ Béla Fleck & The Flecktones"), but if I had several other "F's" by different artists, they likely wouldn't be as alpha organized.

    Anyways, just trying to think it through and work it all out. Thanks again for your post=)

    -Theleb
