I don't know how to be more clear. I am very familiar with tagging. I use MP3TAG, and ripped & tagged most of my 1500 CDs myself. I do NOT have the album art embedded in the Tags. I just dbl checked a few, and there is no album art embedded. None. Zilch. Nada.

Just because your MP3s have art doesn't mean mine do. And the display is coming from a BMW source, not directly from the MP3.
