I have over 300 folders in "My Music" and the thumbnails and folders dont act consistently.

I have posted this question before and got the advice to go to Tools/Folder Options/ View/ Apply to all folders once I have selected a folder that displays like I want it to. Unfortunately it changes nothing.

I'm wanting to upload my music to my PS3 and want the album art to display correctly but I'm not going to upload until I can get it all to display correctly, because theoretically it should be easier on my computer.

What is going on with these folders? Take Huey Lewis for example, there are 3 albums in the main folder each with a thumbnail but only one shows on the main folder, what is up with that. Jeff Beck folder...perfect. What is up with the James Brown folder? Not formatted at all like IO want but cant seem to do a thing about it.

What is this mess all about?

Just want to throw this out there, but try doing the follow:
  • Right click a folder that's not behaving like it should
  • Click Properties
  • Click the Customize tab
  • At the top, change the folder type to the music-type folders

Uh....that didnt seem to change anything. The setting for many of the folders was "document" so I changed the folder to "Music Artist" and absolutely nothing changed. I couldn't really apply the change to all folders either.

I'm not really well versed in folder tweaking as I've never really had to be but this is driving me insane. I suppose it has to do with the various methods I've used to convert CD's over the years, different software I suppose creates different folders....maybe.

Anyways is there not some program that could make this easier?
