This is my first time joining this forum.
I'm having a strange problem with my cowon j3 player.
I have always been able to view the the album art while looking at my mp3 files on my cowon on my computer. Now it does not show the the album art. I can view the files on my player from the computer, but do not have a picture. It shows a generic mp3 picture.
Yesterday, I plugged my player into my usb port to charge it. Right away it showed a message saying windows was installing  a new device driver for the Cowon player and it was successfully installed. I believe by installing that new device driver, I cannot view the album art now when I click on an mp3 file. The player works fine and I'm able to view the pictures when I'm just using my player, but when viewing on my computer it won't show the picture. I know it sounds silly, but I like to be able to view the picture on my computer. Another thing I noticed also, When you go down to the lower right hand of my computer and click on safely remove device from computer, the cowon does not show up. I read somewhere that you should click on the icon and then a message will say, "It is safe to remove the cowon from your computer." My concern is that I will eventually damage my player.I have the latest firmware on my cowon, which is 2.29. There will probably be no more firmware updates for this model cowon.
Has anybody got any ideas or should I just accept that this is the way it is?
