Default tired of WMP11 sync and album art bugs. Alternatives?

I've been using WMP11 to sync my Zen V Plus (4Gb). It works well for the most part, but for some reason, it likes to mix & match my album art.

All my album covers are embedded in every mp3 file using Tag&Rename (great software, by the way).

All Windows XP folder thumbnails display correctly. The only error shows up actually on the Zen screen, when I play the files. The Zen V always depicts an album cover without fail-- except it often (not always) will swap album covers.

(I read somewhere that the Zen V depicts album art straight from the embedded tag, but after experiencing this bug, I do not believe this). Since it always depicts covers, but swaps them, I think that the Zen V and/or WMP11 is using some sort of internal album art database on the device itself, and this is getting corrupted.

I have fresh installed, reset, upgraded to latest Zen firmware, etc. (Even installed on a completely fresh XP machine). No luck.

I would like to stop using WMP11 and try another solution, to see if that will solve the problem.

I installed Creative's latest version of MediaSource 5, with all options enabled.

However, my Zen V doesn't even show up in MediaSource! (It shows up in XP explorer just fine).

Any suggestions?
