Embed artwork in MP3 fix request

I know that Winamp will embed artwork in Mp3 files however, it will create a cover
jpg file as well. I would like to see the the artwork embedded without creating
any external cover.jpg files. Other MP3 tagger programs offer to add cover artwork but
will alter the MP3 saved file with icon that matches the embedded artwork.

Try this plug-in (http://bogproghome.hopto.org/downloa...beddedart.html), it will only embed the selected artwork file. Windows Explorer will show the embedded artwork if you select one of it's icon views (this is the normal default operation for all mp3s containing embedded artwork).

I've tried that and it will (at least for me) create a cover.jpg that must remain with the
MP3 file.

I also posted on the BlogProg thread:

I've tried MP3 tagger and it can embed artwork and not create extra "Cover.jpg" like
BlogProg does.


This is results using MP3 Tag:

Seeing as Winamp is my default MP3 Player
the MP3 files have this icon:

If that same MP3 file is copied to my desktop the file icon
looks like this:


This is strange.

Thanks anyway for the info...
