    Folder Views


    Hey guys hope all of you are still doing well. This may be a little unnecessary or stupid but those of you who like your stuff organised and perfect would understand. When you have music in a folder, usually the folder picture would be that of the album art of the music in the folder or just the file. Usually it would be just one picture sticking out of the folder. Recently when I gained more music, some of the album folders displayed two pictures sticking out instead of one. I have tried everything and also checked that all the tags and details are identical but made no difference. If anyone knows how to fix this and has the time please help. I attached two images. The first is how I would like the folder to look like, the second is how the wrong folder looks like. All music files are .mp3

    No. The folder with the unwanted graphics contains 11 songs and a jpeg image of the cover. The one on the left also contains 11 songs and a jpeg image of the album cover. Both are in .mp3 format.

    I realised that as soon as I read the name of the album and deleted my previous post .

    I managed to reproduce this problem , the only thing is , I could only reproduce it by NOT having a folder.jpg file with the album cover in the folder and changing the tags on one of the MP3s to not match the rest.


    I tried clearing the each of the tag info from 1 MP3 one at a time...until there was no tag info left at all , note the lack of title , track number and even author on file 11.

    As long as there was a folder.jpg file in there....it always only showed the single graphic on the folder.

    as soon as I deleted the folder.jpg file from within the MP3 album folder.

    it showed two graphics on the folder similar to your problem , presumably 1 for the ok MP3s and 1 for the one I removed the tags from.

    un-deleted the folder.jpg back into the folder...and the folder image is back to a single picture.
