Pictures on music folders in vista

  james66 19:40 04 Jun 2009

I have transfered my music library on to new laptop ,runnig vista ,some of the folders have pictures (ie the font cover of album as the icon )but some dont .I have tried right clicking the folder selecting properties,customise then choosing picture but it wont change it .
It's doing my head in .Is there an easy solution or am i missing something.
Any help appreciated .

Depends on the folder itself having album cover pictures in them. If they don't have them, then there's nothing for it to display.

In Library view in Windows Media Player try pasting the picture onto the album, it worked fine for me.

I dont really know, they all show ok in my folder views, have you got a picture in each album called folder.jpg?
