Download the art and put it in the same folder as the song with the name "cover.jpg" . Another way is to download mp3tag and use it to embed the art in the file ( that's the way I do it ) . I don't think EAC will do it for you or at least I don't know how.

Regards,
Diego

I have all WAV files, which don't rip with the cover art in EAC, so I use an application called AlbumArtDownloader, with this Foobar2000 skin, which allows me to download the cover for whichever track is currently playing, and install it into the associated album file on the HDD. It's kind of a pain to have to download each one at first, but it gets the job done.

cover.jg might work. Never tried it.
A file named "Folder.jpg" in the same folder as the album definitely works. That is how I do it.

There is a Wndows gadget called NowPlaying that can be set up to automaticall download the art as you play an album in Foobar. Highly recommended. Search on it here.

Why, how much did you pay for EAC?

Are you embedding it or just using separate files?
The newer versions of Foobar include a cover art viewer which should read anything embedded by mp3tag. It's perfect and you don't need to worry about jpegs lying around your music folders.
