Album art got embedded in my file

I’m using version 2.0.2

So I was using audacity to record over a song. I didn’t realize until I was all done recording and editing that the MP3 file I was sampling from had album art. Somehow this album art has become permanently embedded in my entire project file. When I export the file, a low resolution version of the album art always appears when playing the MP3, but the mp3 file says there is no album art so I can’t remove it. And recordings from that project are also corrupted like this and if copied and pasted into a new project have the same effect.

So as far as I can figure the only way to get rid of it is to completely start over from scratch, this time removing the album art from the mp3 I was sampling before I import it into audacity.

There has to be a way to fix this. Please help!

I’m not sure what is happening there, but Audacity does not support album art. MP3s created by Audacity do not have album art.
Perhaps the low resolution image is not actually embedded in the file, but just being displayed by your media player somehow?

That’s the weird thing. Here is the mp3

When I play it in WMP and Zoom player, that album art appears even though when I go into the mp3 file, there is no album art. So the best I can guess is that the album art from the original mp3 somehow got fused into the audio file. I have no idea how that would work but that hasn’t stopped it from happening :confused:

That link says:
“Invalid or Deleted File.
The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire.”

Oh woops! Sorry! Here, this one should be right

There’s no metadata in that file that I can see.

Sometimes your system can be keyed to the content such that it goes on-line and looks for other information not carried in the actual file. This is how you get song titles on Music CDs. Music CDs do not carry titles, but people will swear they do because every time they put a CD in the computer to play it, the music player goes on line and looks it up.
