    I'm currently setting up an MP3 jukebox on my laptop for an upcoming party and could do with a good album art downloader (preferably free, but would pay if I had to) that will automatically download the cd covers for me, as I'm fed up doing so manually but the programs I've downloaded so far don't work very well (can't remember which ones thay are unfortunately). If it is able to rename the files automatically too that would be a bonus.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    mp3Tag works reasonably well in my experience: http://mp3tag.de/en/index.html

    Can easily rename every track in your collection according to tags (e.g. "Track Number - Track Name - Album Name - Artist - Year.mp3" or whatever you want), and I think it can download Album Art for all tracks as well. It can certainly do it individually, and I think if you select all the tracks and choose to download Album Art it should work.

    EDIT: Nope just tried it, you can't batch download all Album Art it seems [​IMG] But if can do the renaming thing.

    Thanks SifJar, it will do until I find something better. At least it's better than Googling them all. Stupid thing is, I already had this prog installed, but didn't realise it did covers to.
