I use MediaMonkey and I haven't had a problem with album art as long as I follow these rules:

- Delete all old album art from the song(s).

- Embed the album art into the song's ID3 tag as the front cover.

- Ensure it is a .jpg file and no larger than 240 pixels by 240 pixels.

As long as the album art complies with these rules it displays consistently. What I've noticed with the size issue is that if it is larger it may or may not display on my player.

Also, if you're updating the album art for a song that is already on your player, you may need to delete the song on your player and load the new version. I sync my player with MediaMonkey and I've had a few cases where the updated version wouldn't load on my player because the old version was already there. Deleting the old version on my player solved the problem.

As far as using iTunes with your Walkman, there is a program you can use that will act as a go-between your player and iTunes: Content Transfer (you can download it from the Sony website). When its running, it puts a small window on your desktop that you can drag and drop songs and playlists from iTunes on to your player.

I hope this helps.
