Hi,

Picked up my new 108 yesterday and am loving it so far. I have my full itunes library on a 32gb usb stick and it works perfectly for playing songs and browsing by artist, album etc.. When playing a song via the USB device there is space on the left hand side which is currently just shows a picture of a USB Stick. It looks suspiciously like this this space should be used to display the album artwork/cover and I do remember the dealer mentioning something about album artwork. Has anyone managed to get this working or know how to go about it. The artwork shows ok in iTunes and I copied the whole itunes Music Library folder over onto the USB Stick. This folder contains a folder called 'Album Artwork' but it still doesn't show the artwork in the car. Music plays perfectly but would be great If I can get the artwork working too.

Thanks for any help.

This is from the 208 Owners Club Forums - I hope it helps;

Now when you load these up you may notice that only some albums have the artwork, this is because the software in the car is not recognising the file format of your album artwork or you simply don't have it attached. 
Every mp3 music file has something called an id3 tag which you can connect information to like song names and artwork etc. Now to add artwork to an album you only need artwork attached to the 1st track for the artwork to appear on the touch screen. How do you attach the artwork I hear you say? Well by far the simplest way is to use this simple program found at the below link its totally free and safe and extensively tested:


Using the programme above firstly load the required mp3 track (if its not mp3 it won't be recognised so you'll have to convert it to mp3) remember you only need to load the first track of the album.
Secondly download the album artwork (using a google image search you can find any album) make sure the files are jpeg and no bigger than 300x300. Now using the meka tool attach your artwork. Hey presto that's it! Your albums should now appear with the correct artwork displaying when you put your USB stick back in your peugeot 208.
