Album Art Not showing
Ok I dragged all of my music over and 1/3 was missing art. then I read how you can use Windows media to Sync I got excited and tried that method. I even updated all of the art so it showed in Windows media. but when I synced the music it was still missing. any suggestions?

That soulds like alot of work, what I do may also seem like alot of work but it works perfectly for me.
Itunes, I create the album playlist, the on the first song, I right click then go to "Get Info" then I click on the "Artwork" Tab, then I click on the Add button. I usually find my artwork on Amazon.com Music: Save on thousands of CDs from your favorite artists, I save the Artwork of the album i want and Add it from the "Artwork" tab. Right Click on the Artwork from this tab to copy and past on your next couple of files.
Once you do it a couple of times, you can do it pretty fast. Trust, its very easy!!

I've been using album art grabber since early December and it's great. In fact it finds album covers that even iTunes doesn't find (i.e. Beatles). When I first used it, there was about 4-5 album covers it couldn't find but I checked a few weeks later and now I have album art for all my music. In other words, they are constantly improving there app.
If you listen to music on your Droid and like to see the album art, buy this app!

Oh, bloody hell...
So, I tried the little MP3Tag mentioned earlier in the topic because I was having the same problem... now my Droid can't recognize the tags at all. Yay. But foobar still recognizes everything, so maybe my Droid's just being stupid? Still... there's the whole problem with my phone thinking all my songs are now untagged entirely. I'm not plunking down $2 for Album Art Grabber when I can do something myself for free, so any help?
[edit:] I tried using MP3Tag to Optimize ACC (whatever that means), and I also tried ditching the default music player for Mixzing... both Mixzing and the default Android Music Player say I have 550 songs by unknown artists. Help!

I dunno if that'll work with me... took advantage of the fact that I'm on Windows and stored all the album art in a briefcase so I could use that to sync it with my old iTunes library. And now they're all synced up.
MP3Tag seemed to be the criminal here... everything I use it on suddenly make my Droid unable to recognize it. I tried using it to fix the problem with one workaround, and it made the problem worse. The weird thing is that Foobar2000 (when hooked up to my computer) can read the tags just fine... it's just Mixzing and the default player that are seeing blank artist fields.
In retrospect, I should've started out with Mixzing, but it's too late for that now...
...And I still don't have any album art on my phone!
[edit2:] Just realized I had a redundant backup... I knew there was a reason I had that external hard-drive! Going to restore from that, then I'll get back to using MixZing to get my album art.

But yeah. None of my music has album art, or maybe 10%. When I rooted and installed the Milestone media browser with coverflow, my collection looked really dumb. That's one thing I liked about MixZing. I might have to try out Album Art Grabber though.

Re: Album Art Not showing
Well, I finally found the forum post for this issue. So, I've recently been putting my music onto my LG Optimus S. The thing is, some album artworks show up, not all of them. I manually embedded the artwork into every track using MP3 Tag. Most album art shows on most of my tracks, some don't though. Its really annoying. Same thing with tags. I copy music onto the phone, and the tags for some of my albums just disappear. It'll tell me the track name, but no artist, or no album. I have picture showing what I mean. Hope to hear a fix to this soon :/ Its really frustrating, I've tried everything I could think of >.<
