Default j3 and aac/m4a

Would just like to point this out in case it saves someone time, or if someone has a solution to this.

Whilst the j3 supports m4a/aac files even though its not listed in specs, it will not support album art for these file types. To get album art working on the j3, the file has to be mp3, and the album art has to actually be embedded in the id3 tag (not just a reference to "folder.jpg" , "cover.jpg" etc). I've also noticed the same thing applies to .wma files. Album art will not display.

If you are a perfectionist like me who wants to have album art for all albums, don't spend a huge long time transferring 1000+ m4a files to your j3, only to realise that you need to take them off again, convert them to mp3, embed the album art, then transfer them a second time.

I am now going through the process of converting 1000 songs from m4a to mp3, which i think is going to take a fair while.

Has anyone been able to get album art to display on the j3 for m4a/aac files?
