I just purchased a Sony E-Series Walkman,&  don't have any album
artwork showing on mp3's i just encoded using my Debian Wheezy

Some of the mp3's i added were actually showing artwork, so i ran
those files through my hex editor and discovered the problem was the
version of lame i was encoding with. The mp3's i encoded using my
Debian (Wheezy) system, the artwork was not showing. But the older
mp3's i was adding... their album's artwork WAS showing.
It might not be the version of lame, but the version of id3 tag cause
the problem. I'd like suggest you start troubleshooting by compare the
id3 tag version, or use a tag editor, easytag for example, to rewrite
the mp3 tag in the version that Sony mp3 supported.

Install a virtual machine, load the older libraries,&  do my
encoding there. However, my issue is i don't know of any virtual
machine software available for Debian Wheezy (amd64). Do you guys
know of any?

Thanks for the response. All tags on mp3's which are currently showing & not showing artwork are in ID3v2.3, so the issue is not ID3 tags.

Also, VirtualBox is not available for Wheezy (amd64), and neither is VMWare.
