    Hi,

    I ripped all my CDs to wav a few years ago and recently bought a NAS to keep it all on. I wanted to convert it to flac and download the appropriate artwork so it shows on my TV when playing through the AVR, but if I can keep the wavs and download the artwork, then that's even better.

    Can this be done with wavs or do I need to re-rip everything from CD again? I'm on a Mac. I have XLD, but that doesn't seem to allow for the downloading of artwork.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Thanks :)

    Thanks for the replies. I don't use iTunes or really play the music on the mac, this just to add the artwork to the server and then I use an AVR to stream the tracks and then the artwork appears on the TV.

    Sorry - thought that you can use it outside of iTunes ... other than that it's probably a copy/paste/rename job out of Amazon or Google images !

    With mine I download the artwork from the Internet. Drag it to the folder it's needed in and rename it folder.jpg. Works with my nas and onkyo amp
