Here's a shout-out to any gurus, with 2012 model year Volts that are equipped with the non-nav radio and MyLink.
Supposedly, according to the fluffy manual and a bunch of marketing materials, MyLink will access Gracenote and get any missing metadata and/or cover art, while preferring what you supply before attempting to locate it. Now, that sounds nice in marketspeak... but certain technical details are not supplied. Like, for example, WHERE to put cover art, and WHAT to name it.
Each of my albums has a cover art file in its respective folder. I've tried naming it albumart.jpg, cover.jpg, and folder.jpg (which works on all my .mp3 players). Yet, unless it's a fairly popular album, meaning Gracenote is likely to have cover art for it, then I'll never see my (own) cover art.
I am of the belief that when I DO see cover art, which is probably 70% of the time, it's because Gracenote is supplying their cover-art image. MyLink is showing THEIRS, not mine. That when Gracenote doesn't have one, I see just the USB symbol. I have yet to try using a "marked" image to prove this theory, however.
Anybody know what I'm doing wrong??!?
Not that it matters (maybe?), but this is on a 8MB USB stick with about 2000 songs. I'm going to be upgrading to 16MB or 32MB soon and want to understand the problem before applying my entire collection.
