FYI. Just posted this in the Mpad forum at http://www.katoemba.net/makesnosenseatall/mpad/comment-page-5/#comment-28027
Here’s an interesting (I think) anomaly I have come across while updating cover art in Mpad – if an album is listed twice under different Artists, the cover art will not update even when the correct jpg file is co-located with the audio tracks. A good example of this is the album “Be Yourself Tonight” by the Eurythmics. In scanning through my database listing by Artist name, this album shows up twice – once under Eurythmics, and once under Eurythmics/Elvis Costello. I could not get the cover art to update and display properly for this album even though it had the correct jpg file in place. Turns out that all the tracks on the album have Artist -> Eurythmics in their tag information except for the song Adrian which is Artist -> Eurythmics;Elvis Costello (ripped with dbPoweramp – don’t know why this didn’t happen for the tracks with Aretha Franklin or Stevie Wonder though?!?). Anyway, this causes Mpad to list the album twice under Artist, which also prevents it from updating and displaying the cover art correctly. While listing albums multiple times based on artist involvement is probably a good thing, not being able to display the cover art correctly is not. The workaround in this case was to edit the tag information for the song Adrian, change the artist to Eurythmics, update the database, refresh the local cache, and , voila, the cover art updates correctly right away. Further to this, before the correction, when viewing the available tracks with Mpad starting with the Artist, then the Album, and then the Tracks, all the tracks on this album displayed whether viewing them from Eurythmics or Eurythmics/Elvis Costello, even though there was only the one track that was Eurythmics/Elvis Costello. Any thoughts? Thanks.
