Embedding album art does increase the size of each file by the size of the picture. Depending on the size of the jpg being embedded it can add up to quite a bit. You can save some space by reducing the size of the file before you embed it. I've used IrfanView along the RIOT plugin to reduce a 1.34 MB file down to 24 Kb and couldn't tell the difference on the screen of the smaller players I have. YMMV.

AFAIK no one has found a way to make Sonys show AA without embedding it. Several other players allow what you're looking at by putting a single .jpg named either folder or cover.jpg in the same folder as the album. That's as far as I know. Someone else may know a way to do it without embedding.
