Hi,
I've recently purchased a garmin 865t and what a brilliant piece of kit it is,well pleased with it. One of the things that swayed me to buying it was the mp3 player and it's a shame that very little is said about it considering the quality of it. I've transfered numerous albums onto a micro card along with the art work;the albums play with no problem but most of the art work does not appear with the respective album but when i look in the picture viewer,all the art work is there.I've reduced the picture size to see if it makes any difference but it hasn't soI'm completely baffled.
PLEASE,can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance.

Normally media players, displaying album artwork, don't use the any separate image files with the mp3s, but use images embedded into the mp3 files themselves.

You can do this with mp3 tag editing (for example windows media player would allow you to edit the tags to include the album, there are other, freeware mp3 tag editors that allow you to do this, too).

you either need to have the tracks from a single album in their own folder along with a jpg file for the album art OR embed the album art in the mp3 file itself using something mediamonkey (save art to tag)
