Less is More

I forget who, but someone here has successfully used a Radio Shack "universal" DC power supply set to 4.5 volts. The ones I've seen there (and everywhere else) have 4.5 and 6 volt settings, but no 5...

First, is this happening only with one particular album or with all you've tried? I also use MediaMonkey and know from experience that some albums simply do not have any album art available through...

I use Media Monkey too. I don't know what you're doing that would cause some album art not to appear on the ZVM, but I would select the option in MM to embed the album art in the ID tags. This works...

From my experience with the Best Buy replacement plan (and reading the fine print), "accidental" damage is not covered, but a simple failure is. In effect, this means nothing obviously the owner's...

Smile My experience with Best Buy

Here's how I got my ZVM--just short of two years ago, I bought a Samsung player at Best Buy for around $250. I got their two-year replacement plan for, as I recall, about $40.

Well, "luckily" the...

Optimal Album Art Jpeg Size

I have collected album art from various sources, and some of it is very large, up to 300x300 pixels. The ZVM does scale the various jpeg sizes down to whatever resolution it displays, but it seems...

I'll defer to your knowledge of ID tags. But the collection of information in a track's tag will include the album name, track name and album art (if it's put there). So, wouldn't this information be...

As an addendum, I did notice yesterday that after some amount of time (I wasn't keeping track), my USB-docked ZVM did shut down on its own. Sliding the power switch brought it back to "docked"...

You are correct! I did an experiment using Media Monkey to tag three albums having the same name. MM put (and displayed) the correct art in each album's tags (and not as a separate jpeg file).

Well I don't know if the tags used are ID3v2, but Media Monkey will embed the album art in the tracks' tags individually (if this option is selected); I've done it and it works.

There is, as far as I can tell, no way (short of renamng an album with, say, Media Monkey) for the ZVM to distinguish album art jpeg files (or album art embedded in ID tags) if two or more albums...

This is a superb program. It converted a 1 hour, 45 minute DVD into a < 1 GB AVI file that runs beautifully on the ZVM. Thanks for the link.
