Cover Art corrupts mp3 files

greetings ..

i have been using mp3Tag to tag my files for sometime now without any real problems ..

i have been using extended tags to add cover art to all of my files .. but have run into an audio book that when i add cover art to the files .. with the exception of the first file of the book .. Media Player Classic cannot play any of the other files in the folder ..it says cannot render the file and gives this error message .. :frowning:

Media Player Classic could not render some of the pins in the graph, you may not have the needed codecs or filters installed on the system.

if i go back and remove the cover art from the files .. Media Player Classic is able to play all the files in the folder .. quite baffling as it is able to play the one file with cover art added .. but not the others ..

anyone have any idea what the problem might be ..

Have you tried writing ID3v2.3 tags (in case you're using ID3v2.4 at Options > Tags > Mpeg)?
