album artwork not appearing
« on: April 05, 2012, 08:40:33 PM »
ive some albums that dont have album artwork in there folders.

1. ive tried coping an image from google in various different sizes,done this today about a 1,000 times,added it to a usb flashdrive took to jukebox copied it into the music folder missing artwork,named it folder and it doesnt work.

2.i brought the jukebox tower in doors,connected a rj45 cable to it to get online on my network,downloaded the same image i had to my usb flashdrive and album art appears on the jukebox.

so why doesnt the same image appear when copied from the flashdrive??????

i added the image by copying from flashdrive then pasting into the album folder,i named the image folder,as per your set up information.

i've also tried adding the artwork to a whole music folder and transfering the whole music folder with artwork in and still doesnt show,yet if i connect to a network save image as into the folder that works,yet where the jukebox is going in a games room theres no internet so wont be able to do that then.

Ok, are you sure you are using the right name for the image because 'folder' is not correct, it needs to be "folder.jpg"
Are you putting the image in the right place ?, to test that, find an image that does show, and then replace it with your offending image to see if that shows.

Hmm. thats a weird one, so its something to do with the USB drive or the file properties perhaps ?
if you've downloaded the images could windows have blocked them in some way, take a look in the image properties (right click mouse)

ok after many hairs pulled out of my head,i sorted it.

if you copy and paste from the flashdrive,it will not load the picture of your album artwork from your album folder,even though its there in the folder .

heres what works

open up and view your album photo right click and preview

then

click on save (which can be a floppy drive symbol or save as)

then save it as folder or folder.jpg

actually both ways work.

then load up jukebox and hay presto a picture/album artwork appears.


i'm not a jukebox virgin,and i've tried others and its just copy and drag and drop on them,as well as completely different interfaces for coin mechs to this one,but now i've ironed out the issues i have had,alls looking good.
