    Losing Album Art (folder.jpg)

    As i rip each CD I check to confirm there is album art. However, after confirming the rip and album art in "Various Artists" folder when I rechecked the folder.jpg with album is missing. Why is this happening? Seems to be only in the "Various Artists" folder.

    You say that the folder.jpg file is there, then later is removed?

    Yes, as I rip each album i confirm the jpg is there as well as a text file. The text file is present but no jpg. If there is a way to reclaim or attach the album cover without a long laborious process that would be appreciated. I've started this project a few times trying to get it perfect so now finding i have missing jpg's is a big disappointment.

    Do you have any other software monitoring your music library folder e.g. Windows Media Player?

    Yes, I have WMP connected. Is that causing the issue?

    Most likely. WMP can do very bad things to our music files, in particular changing/removing the album art without our knowledge. At least go through the settings in WMP and turn off its ability to change the tags or artwork or automatically do anything. Best answer is to turn off WMP in your computer. I wouldn't let WMP touch my music files. On all my windows machines, I've not got WMP setup to run.
