N97 Album Covers

I have 2 phones:  Nokia N97 and HTC Desire Z.  With both of these phones, I transfer the music from my PC to them by connecting them via USB as USB storage devices, I then copy the music files and directories onto both phones.  On my Desire Z, the album covers appear on my music player.  On my N97, they do not.  I'm sure that the album cover info is copied over to both phones as I noticed files in addition to the MP3 files are copied over.

 

How do I get album covers of the songs to appear on my N97 music player?

Re: N97 Album Covers

Is there an app that can allow album covers to show?

Re: N97 Album Covers

Try optimising with ovi player on pc, failing that use an app on ovi store called cover up.
Good luck!

Re: N97 Album Covers

For album covers to appear on your Nokia phone, they must be embedded into the file, and not simple associated with it.

Re: N97 Album Covers

Well I tend to embed mine anyway to save having lots of photo's on the phone, but AFAIK if you add Album Art on the handset using the Music player to attach from a photo on the handset it is just 'Associated, as if you remove the photo, the art dissappears ? But I'm not technically experienced to know if this is correct or not ?

Its associated via the phone (SYmbian OS), but I havent experienced Symbian being able to read PC made associations.

I didn't realise Cover Up works on S60.  I thought it was S^3 only.

Re: N97 Album Covers

If it doesn't work on S60 I appologise , just trying to offer a simple solution, as I've never had an issue with Album art I've never used it, only read favourable reviews ! Still find easiest way to add album art on WMP then add album to phone, but people should try whatever they like and use there preferred method !

No it was an experimental section of the forum where articles and tutorials could be posted, and it has been removed, sorry :smileysad:
