I wonder if the album art issue has been fixed and that songs and albums now retain the images without the need for the picture to reside in the gallery ?

if you have a pc you cud use an app called mp3tag, its free and it puts the art into the mp3 file so werever ur music goes the art is always with it, not two seperate files

Does it involve a weekend of restoring my apps and settings or does it have the new technology whose acronym I can't remember?

I understand this but why should I have to do this when Music Player says it does it for me. My N73 did this without any problem. I love my N95, but this is a schoolboy error on Nokia's part. Here's hoping it gets fixed.

There are two ways AFAIK that images can be used with MP3s:
  • Embed the image(s) into each MP3 file, or
  • Save the image elsewhere and have the relevent MP3s refer to those files.
I choose the former which, albeit makes each MP3 file bigger, has always worked for me.

The only song album cover bug thing I've noticed with v20 is this... if I open up the music player either by holding the multimedia button or opening the app from the menu, and the last song had an album cover on it, then it will show the album cover. However, if I open the music player by pressing the play/pause button, and the last song had a picture on it, it won't show the image or any other image. I have to close the app and reload it before it does.

Has anyone else noticed this?

BTW looking forward to v21

Henklbr, there's just one thing I'm a tiny bit worried about: does it retain the video editor? Of course, there's no reason why they should remove it but they did on the 8GB. I was only able to use the video editor following the demand paging update, and I think it's brilliant, so it would be a shame to lose it now.

And did it retain your contacts and settings?

odd that the service centres get it and give it out to clients before it is officially released.

out of interest, i have updated my phone to v20, but put the product code back to be o2's do i need the change to product code to be generic again to get the update?

Yes you do, as the software update program reads the current product code from your phone.

It's not really surprising that service centres get firmwares before they're released to the website. That doesn't mean the service centre version are "pre release" it just means the website is lagging behind the actual release dates.
