Hi (Apologies if this is a repeat but I don't think so).

I have 50gb worth of MP3 files that I wish to attach album art to. They are all in a very thought out directory structure as follows :

01 Religious Music
01 Album01
Religious_AlbumArt01.jpg
Track01
Track02

01 Album02
Religious_AlbumArt02.jpg
Track01
Track02

02 Classical Music
01 Album01
Classical_AlbumArt01.jpg
Track01
Track02

01 Album02
Classical_AlbumArt02.jpg
Track01
Track02

So it is my intention to use VBA code to go through the directory structure opening up Track01 & Track two for Album01 & 02 and attaching the Religious_AlbumArt01.jpg to both Tracks.

I can do the search of directories code but what I am unsure of is how to attach the Religious_AlbumArt01.jpg to the MP3.

I have look at the following to no avail.

VBA READ/WRITE .MP3 & .WMA PROPERTIES (SOLVED)
FreeVBCode code snippet: Extract the ID3 Tag from an mp3 File
Read MP3 header information and read/write the ID3v1 tag - CodeProject
https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/F...015/mp3-tag-editor-and-excel-vba?forum=isvvba

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Bulk attach Album Art to MP3 Track using VB.Net

Ok, thats great, happy to do it in VB.Net, will change the title to VB.Net

I will have a look at what you have suggested. "you need one that supports ID3v2, for example id3lib - The ID3v1/ID3v2 Tagging Library"

Will continue my reading up of the subject. Seems a daunting task, but I need to do this to bring all my old recording into the 21st centuary, otherwise I will and up in the dark ages.

Thanks
