I took a test drive today and used a USB stick with music files to play with the B&O system. I didn't see the album cover art display in the main display. The song title and album info was there, but no cover art. I'm pretty sure the album art is there because it shows up in the folder with the music. Is there a setting that needs to be toggled on to display cover art? Infinite Blue expected mid March.

I am following this. Interested to know the solution. Love album covers on my USB. Work in my Escape about half the time...

Picked up my car today and USB cover art does work. The USB that I was using had the art as part of the folder with the music files, but I used a tag editor to add the cover art to the individual music file and then it worked. Worked for both FLAC and MP3 files.

interesting. pretty sure MFT will do folder pictures (I know pictures show, and I'm pretty sure the files don't have them embedded, just the folders) so ... seems like a step back. don't really relish the thought of editing every file to add the images.

Folders definitely didn't work with MME. I think MFT had the ability to go to the cloud and pull in art if it found the album. Doesn't look like MME can do that. Embedding does work, but it is a pain.

oh I guarantee MFT does no such thing 😉 there is the Gracenote database that's in there but that's an offline datastore.

That's what I was talking about, Gracenote.

So your MP3/Flac files had the album art included as an ID3 tag? If not, how did you get it to work?

yes, took the album art from the folder and embedded it into the ID3 tag with a tag editor. Took a while to do all the albums.
