I've determined through trial and error that the pilot will not support/display JPEG images saved as "progressive" images. If your embedded art is a progressive jpg file, you're going to get a black box.
This can be fixed by exporting the image (if necessary) and opening it and re-saving it. IrFanView
is one of many programs which can do this.
I've also verified that MP3Tag can add art to any MP3 file that will show up when files are copied vis MSC, under the Tools-Options dialog in the Tags->Mpeg section, make sure both ID3v1 and ID3v2 are checked, and check either of the ID3v2.3 options (either UTF-16 or ISO-8859-1) and it will work, ID3v2.4 will not
Hopefully, this will end a lot of head-scratching about mysteriously missing artwork.
hey i just tried it out and it worx, but then again it was only for one song. im trying it out on a m3u playlist. i hope the art shows up that way to. Is it possible to add a directory off of the player and then have it resave the tag data to the player? that would be awesome. im gonna try that. looks like this new years im gonna be working hard..
