This poor horse is being flogged beyond redemption.

For MP3s, it uses the info in the Tags to then go online via cell to Gracenote, where it finds the album art. Why would you think for commercial CDs it would use Gracenote, but it wouldn't for an MP3? That doesn't even begin to make sense.

I know it's minor, to you and I both, but it's still one of those things my mind refuses to just let go. I'm going to play with those Tags until I figure out which ones it uses, and what affect minor changes have (like misspellings).

I'm away for the weekend (although with my car), so probably won't get around to this for a few days.
