Album Art Not Showing Up in Music Player
I just got an Atrix, and about 10-12 of my album covers will not show up (about 500 total songs). Yes, the images are written to the id3 tags directly, and all of them show up on other phones perfectly (I came from a myTouch 4G, also put the card in a Inspire 4G), as well as any computer. I have tried 3 factory resets, two memory card formats (one quick, one full), re-writing the images to the tags, and two other media players (winamp and Mixzing). All songs were tagged by mediamonkey, and all files are mp3s. For some maddening reason, these 10 or so album covers will not display properly in any music app on the Atrix. I would put this in another forum, but I've never had problems like this specific to one phone.
What am I missing? Any other Atrix user having the same issues?

I only tried it with stock and music mod players but after I realized that I don't play music that much (rather, don't care whether I see album art or not when I do), I just let it go and put Phantom Control Widget on my screen for the player controls.
At least for you its just album covers; for me, I could not get it to identify the artist and album tags that were properly put in. :/

Mine isn't showing up either...or rather very few of my albums have art work showing up. Not sure why not. I'm not an audiophile, so I'm not super savy in the ways of the electronic music players. It would be nice if the album art showed up, but if it isn't an easy fix, I'll probably leave it alone.

- Stock 2.3.4 - Stock 4.0.4
The dimensions of the pictures used in those Albums , might be too big (i used to have this problem in my Sony Ericsson W910 , but a simple resize\corp fixed it , now all my albums have 300x300 images)
I've tried the Connected Music Player in my Milestone before Motorola removed from the web & all my songs showed their album arts (i add images through iTunes)
Try resizing their album art & see how it goes ?
Off topic , can you read the Lyrics in the Music app , like an iPhone ?
No lyrics in the stock music player. I swore I saw that demonstrated somewhere on the MOTO website pre-release...
And to add on to that, half of my music library has images much larger than 300x300, so I don't think that could possibly be the problem... I'll try it though.
