Default Album Art for albums of same name (different artist)

I've read multiple threads on multi disc albums, but my question is will the P3 properly separate albums and their cover art by artist? For example, if I have the Godsmack album "Awake," and the Secondhand Serenade album of the same name, will I only get album art from one of them? This is the way my Zen worked and it bugged the hell outta me. I've read that unlike the Zen, which stored album art separately from the file as .alb files, the P3 reads directly from tags. Does that mean I'm right in assuming that the album art embedded in the file is the art I'll see?

Yes, it should be as long as you have the artist part of the tags different.

Alright thanks. Just ordered one now. It's amazing how many little things you have to look at when buying an mp3 player these days.

Works half right. In the library list, I get the same Album Art for both, but once the file is played, the correct cover is displayed. Really don't know why so many players can't do this properly.

That makes sense. In album view it's only looking at album names, so it will display the first album of name "X" that it finds, regardless how many there actually are. It would take more complex programming in the firmware to look deeper after album name then seperate them. So probably in the name of speed, they only look at the one parameter. It's not like these things have a 3 GHz dual core cpu with a 1 GHZ data bus to work with. So they can only get so complicated with the OS and functions before the UI responsiveness takes a penalty.

People already complain about the slight lag in the P3 UI already.

Good point. It would be nice if it was a little faster.
