BUYSELLNY: I have to give my thanks to you and the folks at MP3Tag! After playing around for another hour changing all of the data on some songs to make sure they were accurate, and actually finding a site that queries Gracenote for lyrics and finding that the songs I was trying to work on (and their albums) did not exist on the site, I searched and downloaded MP3Tag to give it a shot...and I have successfully gotten all 183 tunes currently on my SD Card to display the artwork correctly! I even got the correct artwork to now display in iTunes as well. to you!!!
I used MP3Tag to edit the files as they sat in the directory where iTunes put them (.../My Music/iTunes/iTunes Music) then went back to iTunes and clicked on each one and selected "get album artwork" and they showed, then I transferred the full contents of the /iTunes Music directory to my SD Card and they worked! Yes the use of MP3Tag makes for a little work, but if you get good sources of album images and save them locally you can reuse them in the future.
I found that AC/DC is an artist that there is almost no artwork in Gracenote, not sure why that is but iTunes shows none of the artwork unless you import a CD of their music directly. My opinion now is that Gracenote officially SUCKS and the only good reason it is part of the 8.4n is that otherwise we would note be able to show artwork at all.
Thats great! Glad I could help.. I actually gave up on doing it.. Until I read what you did here I have some new ideas.. My music is across multiple plaatforms and so corrupted are the tags that I have to manually edit each song in some cases. I am going to see if there is an upgrade you can buy for MP3tag.. I dont work for them either lol.. The software works.

MP3tag is an awesome program. I found out that that album art I thought was there, wasn't. What I did discover trying to resolve this....and yes I'm banging my head on the dash was AAC/mp4 files do not use ID3 tags and album art is embedded on newer versions of iTunes. It seems older versions of iTunes routinely put album art into another folder.
Windows/PC computers do not support ID3 tags v2.4. So it has to be 2.3 or older. I zeroed the tags and rebuilt using iTunes and mp3tag to v2.3. In some cases I just converted mp3's to AAC files. As of now, the metadata is showing up but no album art yet. That took a while before the uconnect database was up to date. It's a hidden file in the flash drive.
At this time, I am just going to let the uconnect build its db with gracenote off. See if that works first. Gracenote was great at over writing the correct metadata. Like Magica (metal band) to Tina Turner!?!
Plan "B" will be dropping the ID3 tag to v2.2 or v2.1, since I believe they still support image files...aka album art. If that doesn't cut it, I'll turn gracenote back on and crank Tina Turner!!
Hey, I just got my Charger, a 2012 8.4N, and it has the same issue.
I tried turning GraceNote off and got no AlbumArt whatsoever.
Is GraceNote a license/copy protection thing? Is there any hope of getting customized Album Art embedded in the mp3 to show up? I listen to a lot of old AltRock that is just plain not sold in stores for the past 10 years...no hope of getting on the GN DB!
