Question: Info on .ALB files

I'm hoping someone can tell me what is generating these .alb files that are created
on my pmp after a transfer from winamp. I want to find the source and stop them from beeing created. I've found very little info on the net about them, i think its an MTP related thing ?

I'm trying to fix the art too small on my portable. If the files have embedded artwork
they are ignored if the folder has an *.alb file,Get rid of the .alb file and the embedded
art works shows up at a good full screen size.
I also tried some some scripting and that doesn't work,
i mean scripting to find / delete any .alb file.. maybe because they are 0 bytes and hidden ?

If i could find the .dll responsible for these i could prob hex edit the binary and
change the name to something the player willl not recognize like .tmp instead etc
And this would probably make me 100% content with winamp finally lol

I've struggled with the art / portable issue with my last 3 pmp's for a couple years now
and its getting to be a tiring pain the butt !!!

Oh yeah and MSC may be a better way to go with my pmp instead of MTP
but it doesn't show up in Winamp like that..

Just wanted to add that if there is anything I can do to help with my issue let me know..

The key issue is this is my 3rd or 4th player in a row that I have used with winamp
and as always im stuck with album art that is waaay too small for the device.
It sucks and looks awefull !

If i go and do manual steps there is no problem but if i have to manualy screw
around with album art then what is the point in even using winamp anyway ?

Lastly this is no new issue like i said i've had several players with this issue
stretching years now and its getting old.. WMP does not have this problem either
but WMP sucks .

Its not like im asking for anything other than basic support here lol

a reply ? anybody care ?
