It'll be because we embed the album art on usb transfers (pmp_android),
so the delay will be occurring whilst it's embedding the art into every file....
whereas we just copy over one external %album%.jpg file per album with wifi transfers.

Maybe 'embed art' should be an option instead, and off by default....?

Though we still also need to address the issue where album.jpg files end up appearing in the Gallery,
where the likely solution would be to transfer them with an extension that isn't recognized by the Android media scanner (e.g. album.art).
I think our workaround for this was to embed the art instead...

I will bring this thread to the relevant devs' attention tomorrow.
