I've used Windows 8 since the Consumer Preview, but I cannot figure out why it has forgotten most of my artwork for mp3's or how to get it back.
The built-in Music app always showed it, and suddenly it doesn't, but also other music apps I have tried don't show it. The music plays fine but only very few songs show the art.
I removed the folders from the libraries and added them back in to no effect. Uninstalled and reinstalled the music app.
I know the artwork is fine since it worked without error before. I'm assuming there is an update that occurred that changed things. One app, Music Info, can't even find any music, but yet it worked before as well.
I also keep the update metadata off, although just checked and it was on somehow.
I posted this question on MS own forums and have seen posts like it, but no response that was helpful. I'm assuming this is not a common problem since I have not seen too much about this, but open for suggestions to fix, but one thing I am certain is that the problem isn't with the music files.
