I'm sorry you had problems, but that's no reason to tell the rest of us not to do it. I just upgraded last week, and I ran into a problem (of my own doing, it turned out). I received replies within...

Correct. And that's an option. I am not up on the "state of tires" these days, and if there are better options, I'd love to hear about them.

But I have no issues with my current ones, which sadly...

Which dealer has it? I'd like to take a look at one, just out of curiosity.

I'm not sure why we would have differences, but in MP3s where I've manually inserted artwork (most use the internal Gracenote db), I use 300x300 JPGs. No problem. Ever.

I don't use iTunes. I just have a folder on my PC called MP3, and an extensive sub-folder network underneath it, that has all my music. I copied that to a stick drive, and that was all I had to do.

Album art comes from the internal Gracenote database, or it can come from Tag Fields in the music files themselves.
