Hi all

I'm new to Slimserver, having just purchased a
Squeezebox.

I've got a mix of MP3 and WMA Lossless files, plus
some WMA 192K for good measure!

Very few of the albums I have include album art. As I
have 700+ albums, I can't face going through by hand
to cut/paste the cover artwork from Amazon or
whereever.

Ideally, I'd like a tool that would scan my library
for all albums, then go off and hunt down an
appropriate album cover, import it and save in right
folder. I've found one or two (Abander, Album Art
Fixer) but don't seem to work as I want them to (maybe
I'm not using them right).

All I want is to add album art - don't want any
programs mucking up my tags!

Can anyone offer suggestions or help!?

Thanks

Nick
