A factor in this could be that Windows Media Player (WMP) stores the album art as two hidden-system files in the same folder where the album is stored (I don't know if it stores the album art in the song's ID3 tag). It is possible that WMP only transmits the album art to your player when you sync it.

That's the advantage of embedding the album art into the song's ID3 tag: It will travel with the song whether you sync it to your player or drag-and-drop the file on your player. I've done this with MediaMonkey, Content Transfer, and drag-and-drop via Windows Explorer and the album art shows up in all cases.
