Any other way to preserve album cover other than transferrng using Nokia Music Manager?

Almost all my songs have a album cover imbedded and I want to have it show up in my phone music player when I transfer it over. So far I've tried drag and drop using memory card reader and it doesn't work. Transfer using Nokia Music Manager works, but it takes ages... Is there any other alternative?

what phone are you using?

You could try WMP11 and phone in media player/media tranfer mode.

Media Monkey and WMP11 will both screw up your embedded album art tags if you allow them to transcode to a lower bitrate during transfer. Go into the sync settings on these apps and tell them not to transcode and Album art will be retained.

uridium is right.

OR

Just drag and drop the MP3, WMA or M4A files to your memory card or mass memory instead of converting them.

Actually, as long as I sort the music files first by artist and then by albums, the album art will show up nicely even they are transferred by memory card reader.
