View Full Version : iAudio9 album art
I recently "upgraded" from an IPOD to the iAudio9. With the IPOD it was beyond easy to insert a CD in my computer and within 5 minutes have it loaded AND the album art included with ZERO hassles. I can not for the life of me find even a clue as to where there may be some instructions for this Mp3 player. I wrote to the COWON support team and all they replied with was, "Use JetAudio". I downloaded ALL the JetAudio stuff and still I can not find ANY place to get some help info on how to use this damn thing! If it wasn't for the audio quality I would have sent it back. The support team at COWON/JetAudio is WORTHLESS!!!!!
Can anyone please, please, PLEASE help me! All I want to do is listen to my CD's and be able to view the album art WITHOUT having to take a course in reading C++ files. COWON states this Mp3 player can be utilized by young and old because it is so simple. HOGWASH!!!
For me the easiest thing to do is use Windows media player to rip and transfer music and album art. The player must be in MTP USB mode and then all you do is "sync" the player. I'm sure others could tell you how to use Media Monkey or other free programs too.

Ditto that! Cowon is, on a good day, "3rd-world" with their support -- or more accurately, without their support. And there is no realistic usable help documentation available for JetAudio -- don't even bother with it.
I do not use Windows Media Player. I use Media Monkey, tag album art when/if necessary, and then when I transfer to the iaudio9 it displays the art.
Because the player seems to lack support for art embedded into ogg tags my solution for album art was to use songbird. Using the foldersync add-on it will place an image in the folder and call it cover.jpg then it will be read by the i9 as the artwork for all of the songs in that folder.
Album art shows up fine embedded, I use mp3tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) or MM (http://www.mediamonkey.com/) to embed it, the help files on either program are easy to learn the how to but there are also tutorials on the net, just try google.
The fastest and easiest way to embed album art is to use mp3tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/). However be sure to enable id3v2.3 UTF-16 tags, not id3v2.4 UTF-8.
If you don't want to bother with mp3tag, I highly recommend MediaMonkey.
Should help the transition from iTunes pretty pleasant.
