I have to assume this is a glitch with WPM reacting with some sort of corrupt file.
In my case this was my fix: (your case my be different)1. If you do use it make sure all the setting are set to how you want them, and hope everything works for you.2. Track down and delete any hidden files (you may not have any)6. (If there is no album art or the correct album art, this should be an easy fix)8.
Track down the corrupted file(s) (It pays to keep your files on your computer well organized)3. Create a new folder and copy a .mp3 for any other audio file that was affected. Create a new folder and copy all the contents from the affected folder in to it.9.
There was no shitty album in WMP when I played the file.
Then it occurred to me that it may be a localized problem, perhaps to just the default folder I download to before files get sorted to their correct folder.
My library consists of 70% downloaded material (my bad and 30% ripped from my CD library.
After many years of labour and love I have created what can only be described as a very comprehensive library with "virtually" all the correct meta-data stored.
Here is a thread that the zune forums about fixing art issues. I did speak too soon since the next run of MM and there I had multiple album artwork I didn't want. You can remove all music from Windows Media Player by selecting all music from the music node then right clicking and hitting Remove from Library; that is, unless you have some reason to keep the music in there.
It's a shame you can't turn that "feature" off in the zune software. Anyhow, the above solution of telling MM not to "Scan Track directories for Album Art" should prevent any problems caused by WMP or creates an album art cache in "C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME_HERE\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\Art Cache" (that's for win xp).
I did a fare amount of research on the topic and everyone was fairly consistent in the approach, uninstall Xbox Music and then reinstall it, play with Windows Media player and its cache and hey presto, you have some more album art.
This approach frankly never worked for me and considering I only had dozen or so albums with the problem it seemed a bit much.
You should find this in your computer and delete it.
