I tried the Wifi Thing like someone mentioned and it worked but only for one artist paolo nutini. will keep trying. what might be of note is that it worked for one of his albums but not another of his albums. anyway in case peole are not sure what i mean i have now uploaded 2 dics to show the difference....please help! Zune looks so much cooler with artists backgrounds ....... as you should see, the muse album has no background pic. that image is just a reflection of my head. sorry.
I have also found though if you leave zune open on your pc and sync a again a couple of mins later it pushes the art across. I had a similar thing with my zune hd where it took a few syncs to get all the data but this i think is because it has to download more and so to keep it fast just gets the basic data then picks the rest up afterwards.
