Question for you Todd, I've only been monkeying with MP3Tag today. The last time I touched that software was more than 5 years ago. Is there a view in there that shows the album art for each track? The way I was doing it I had to click onto each track to see it's art in the info pane, which kinda sucked.
I've searched both the forums and Google for updates for the 430N/RHB radio Gracenotes software... Nothing.
All sorts of 'love' for the 730N, but not the 430N.

In MP3Tag you can choose the columns you wish to view and one of them is 'album art'. It will tell you how many images are saved into the file, I've seen some MP3 files have multiple images.

I generally sort by the album column so that all the songs from an album are together, then highlight all the songs from the album and edit the common info at once (artist, year, album artists, cover art, and so on). If you are viewing all songs from one album AND if they all have the same image then you will see the image displayed on the left side.

Another big tip...
Right click on a song (or group of songs) and choose 'Extended Tags'. There's more metadata in there that you may wish to edit (or delete).

I also use another program called MPGain to equalize the volume of my MP3 files. You will still notice that songs from the 70s and 80s aren't as 'loud' as songs from the 90s and up. They have been steadily increasing the 'loudness' of songs since the 90s. I'm not a musician or music nut so I can't really explain the concept.

I couldn't find a 'thumbnail' view so to speak, but if you go to
View>Customize Columns there is a column called 'cover'
Select that and move it to the top of the list now you will have a column that will display a 1 if the file has album art or it will be blank if there is no album art... you still need to click each track to actually see it's art in the info pane but it is one step closer.

You can always view the folder in Windows Explorer thumbnails view to take a look at all the thumbnails to make sure they are all the artwork you expect them to be.

Re: Album Art Suggestions

Pomdave and Todd, thanks for your tip on the cover column. That made it really easy to see what was missing. Probably even better than if there were thumbnails.

Thanks again. The library is completely updated and everything displays properly in uConnect.
