I'm ripping my CD collection with Windows Media Player and when I'm online I get the track titles and album art - very painless and quick. Were is the album art stored on my computer? When I burn to DVD I want the art to go with it. I suspect that it's embedded in the 1st song.

I did a Google search but couldn't find anything.

The album art is just normal jpg images though by default they are hidden files. They will be in the location of where the music is stored. Turn on showing of hidden files and you should see them.

AeroSpace engineer you have a lot of stars so you must be right... but I display hidden files in all my folders and don't see any .jpg files. What am I doing wrong?

Make sure your showing hidden files and not protected system files

It's also possible that the images have been embedded into the file.

For Windows Vista, to see the album art files in the relevant album folder, you need "Hide protected operating system files" in Control Panel > Folder Options > View (tab) to be unticked.

I had no idea about album art until I came across this thread and discovered something. :D I thought newer versions of media player are more boring I haven't learned about the usual 'now playing' mode as I used to operate before. Thanks for the lead.
