Hi,

I've got a small problem on my mac, coming from windows I have a vast collection of music, where each album is in a folder with a folder.jpg. On windows this then shows up as the album cover in folder view.

I know i can copy and a paste the jpeg into folder info on the mac, but is there a way to it on bulk, as my album collection has been growing over the last 15 years.

Thanks for any help

Why not import your music into iTunes and use it's Album Art feature?

er intel core i7 macbook pro, sorry didn't know i had to be anal and write the whole thing out and secondly it does make a difference because iTunes can't handle large libraries very well , especially when there on a NAS

so thanks for the useless help mate and if anyone else can answer my question

cheers

Chas wasn't being anal, he was being specific. There are huge differences between a Mac Pro and a Macbook Pro, and diagnosing any performance issues (like you're describing) will require some detail.

For what it's worth, my iTunes collection is 375.85GB and I keep it all on file server in my closet. My workstation, a 2.8GHz Core i7 MBP, accesses everything flawlessly over the network (802.11G). No problems. No delays.

As to your question about Album Art -- This thread may help: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

And next time, before you go mouthing off to the senior members who spend their time helping people without asking for anything in return, at least try using Google. The solution I found was the first result.
