I've been keeping my music files on a laptop and using Windows Media Player (on Windows 7) to manage them. I have album art for most of my music. Now I have a NAS 110 which seems to be a pretty sweet solution. However, when I copied the files over to the Our Music folder, they show up on the laptop in WMP via the media service (good!), but no album art (bad).
What does it take to get the NAS 110 to serve up album art as well (not just the music)?

Hmm...the album art showed up briefly once, and now it's gone again.
Part of the problem may be that the albums aren't coming up correctly. In WMP the "albums" are just the artist names. When the art came up correctly, the album names were also correct. I don't know what happened to make it work, or why it isn't working again.

Just setup my NAS 110 and done the same thing, and having the same problem - no album art, each just showing every album with a generic "music" image. If I instead connect WMP12 to the NAS as a drive, then everything works fine, it's just as media server it doesn't work.
Anyone know a solution?

well ... I partially tell a lie. All the album art does show up - under "Pictures"!!
I've also discovered a folder ".tb" that seems to hold thumbnails and that I have no permission to delete

I am unable to delete the .tb folders and their contents. These are found in Public or Private shares. This is a minor problem but we should be able to delete them.
When I do a NAS to USB backup it shows a fail status even though all the data was backed up.
The backup log reports fails like,
“rsync: failed to set permissions on “shares/usb1-1.2share1/New Folder/Our Pictures/test streaming/ .tb:”
I think not being able to delete the .tb folders relates to the rsync failures.
This isn't a big item either since the data is backed up but some people don't like seeing a failed status.
I reported this today to Seagate BlackArmor NAS team and gave them screen shots.

I've got my NAS 220 set up as a media server. Works great with the exception that I cannot see album art from any of my media players with the exception of Windows media player. All the other players (Samsung TV, Pioneer Bluray, And WDTV live) do not show the art. All the files have the same album cover with "music" written across.
I gather this has been a problem in the past but I have yet to see a solution. Any help would be appreciated.
