USB album folder icons hit&miss!!

Post by Ghiggz » Sun Jul 02, 2017 12:04 pm

Ever since we had ours I've had issues with the album icons on USB showing..
Some work and some just don't.
But they are all the same files, all resized to 500x500 folder.jpg in the same program, but some show up and some just don't, it shows the default usb icon instead.. and when they do work it stacks the other icons and you can browse by cover by pressing it, but when they don't show it doesn't stack any others under it and pressing it does nothing..
And sometimes ones that used to work suddenly don't..

Also I have checked one works for one album, then have cut and pasted it into a folder of one that doesn't show, and it still doesn't show it, even though that same file works in another folder..

Anyone else have this issue?
Anyone got any ideas why some work and some don't??

I think the system uses cover art that is embedded with the music file, i.e. You can't see the cover art file when looking in windows explorer.
I tried copying some MP3 files from iTunes onto an SD card and found that the car doesn't always use the cover art that iTunes uses. I suspect we'll have to use an id3 tag editor to fix the issue.

Have done some digging and experimenting, and it appears the OS gives priority to an embedded jpg in the mp3, and if there is NO embedded file then it displays folder.jpg from the folder, but if there IS an embedded jpg and its bigger than 500x500 then it simply doesn't show it and the whole thing stops there, it doesnt show the folder.jpg.

I used the Tagscanner prog that was posted above by loffler and this shows embedded jpgs of huge dimensions in my files, so i drag & dropped my resized 500x500 folder.jpg into tagscanner and resaved, for each album, and yay, covers that never displayed, now show!!!
