I've tried two things:

Copying a jpeg file of the cover art into the actual album folder, along with the song files
Adding jpegs into the Fiio's "Gallery"

But no luck: there's no album art while playing.

Any suggestions out there?

If all else fails, simply embed the album art in the meta-tag

I have the same problem.  Some album art works and others don’t.  It doesn’t appear to be down to the size of the artwork some work at 800 x 800 and other don’t and some fail even thought the size is 60kb

Use a program like mp3tag and save the art directly into the music files!

MP3tag - as suggested above will do it. Download free here:

https://www.mp3tag.de/en/

The video below shows you how to add art for one track, but you can select an entire album just as easily.

Fiio Support, is there no way to do this without an outside program?

Slaine, thanks for those tips. I actually got one to work, but there must be a better way than what I did:
-copied an album folder from my M7 onto my desktop.
-dragged all the songs into the Mp3tag box
-added the album art and saved it
-copied all those songs back into the same desktop folder
-copied the desktop folder back into the M7 folder under the proper artist name.

Tell me there's a better way

Rejoice! I have found an easier solution that doesn't need MP3tag or anything else.

I found this on a thread for another Fiio device.  Find your album art on the web. Download the image with "save image as". Copy that download into your album folder, along with the songs. Then RENAME the jpeg file "cover" (without the quotes) -- and voila! My M7 recognizes the art!

It won't work if you name the jpeg anything else, for instance, not "Rubber Soul cover," not "Beatles cover", just "cover".

Why this isn't in the M7 user manual is beyond me. Why Fiio support hasn't answered any of my emails in a month is also beyond me.

That user manual is next to useless, and so is this company's support of its products. Had I known this, I would have bought something else. Then again, maybe they're all like this, I don't know. I hope not.

Hopefully someone else having problems with their art finds this solution.

Cheers.
