This means you have MinimWatch working correctly, which is good. Smile

Did you use iTunes to rip the files that don't show album art? If so, this might explain the problem. Unlike most media servers, iTunes doesn't store album art inside the audio files (embedded art), but stores it in a separate database. MinimServer doesn't read this separate iTunes database, so it isn't finding the album art.

If you have a Windows PC, you should be able to use dBpoweramp to add embedded album art to your audio files. This will enable MinimServer to find and display the album art. There are probably similar tools for the Mac, but I don't have a specific recommendation. Another option is to put an album art file named Folder.jpg or Folder.png in the same folder as the audio files.

and if you do follow the Folder.jpg or Folder.png route, then you can use the excellent free Album Art Downloader to search for and save the cover in the folder with the ripped CD
