    Then most likely the Artist-AlbumL.jpg in thumbs\music\albums is missing for some reason..

    Did you tick "use id3"? Please do a scan from configuration and post that configuration.log

    Okay, there will be a publicbuild soon which has an addition to create the album-art even if no embedded covers are found. Please re-scan from config with that one.

    was this a specific decision to only use embedded coverart ?

    i never use embedded art (and remove them if the mp3s have it). i prefer to use a "folder.jpg" file.

    Well - some people suffer now - they have "unclean" collections where a directory might contain "folder.jpg" but in fact has many different files - for those there will be many false album art pictures now...

    But whoever likes to use thumbs should have met the prerequisites :D
