No, I don't think so. I right-clicked on files of many MP3s off my desktop and the album art is embedded into the meta-tag data. I have a bunch of bootleg music I got off some sketchy site online. When it's on a USB stick, the iDrive displays the custom cover art that the website put on the files. No way album art comes from gracenote.
