Album art

Sometimes album art or other album information does not transfer during the music transfer process. In this
case, you can find the missing album information. This procedure requires Internet access.
To find album art when it is missing:
1
From the Windows desktop, tap (or click) the Start button, tap Windows Media library or iTunes.
The albums appear in the library.
2
Search for the album that did not have artwork.
3
Place your cursor over the blank CD (the album with no cover art), and right-click.
4
In the pull-down menu, click Find Album Info.
The application accesses the Internet to find the album.
5
Press Finish when the album is identified, and wait while the album information downloads (cover
art, date of production, and more).
You can also create your own art:
1
Find a piece of art on the Internet and download it to your hard drive.
You might find the artwork of the original CD cover, and choose that.
2
Open your Music folder and find the album that does not have artwork.
3
Drag and drop, or cut and paste, the art to the blank CD icon in your Music folder.
To find album art for music stored in the iTunes library:
1
Navigate to the iTunes store and sign in.
2
From the Advanced menu, select Get Album Artwork and follow the directions.

each song in song list view, and next to each album in album tile view.
