Albums in Media Player not showing in Media Center

    I have gone through the arduous task of retagging all my albums and
    providing the proper cover art. I also have alot of "albums" that aren't
    official releases, things like live recordings and dvd rips of music that I
    have also tagged and provided album art for. All my tags appear correct in
    Media Player 10. And now that I have turned off Media Player's annoying
    ability to overwrite my tags, the tags have stayed stable. Unfortunately
    not all my albums that appear in Media Player are appearing in MCE 05.
    Anybody have any idea why this would be? I have also read somewhere that
    there is a similar setting in MCE to go out and automagically update
    existing tags, but I can't find it....was that an MCE 04 thing, or does the
    setting exist in 05 also?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Likewise.... I have a load of mp3 files ripped, tagged and cover art sorted
    prior to using Media Player or MCE2005.

    I am now using Media Center and much of the cover art does not display. If
    you select a track the embedded cover art is shown but not when viewing the
    main "My Music" front page. It seems that only albums found using the will gt displayed correctly. I guess
    there must be some buried requirement in MCE for it to be understood. Why can
    media player simply search CDDB like Musicmatch or similar programs?

    Any insight anyone can provide would be much appreciated
