    Music album's folder icon --> CD cover image (XP)

    A person at college had this setup on his machine and I'd like to copy it.

    He had his music organized into folders by album. The cool thing was that the icon for each folder was that of the album's CD cover.

    Now, I know I can do this by using the thumbnails view, and right-clicking a folder | Properties | Customize | Choose Picture.

    But, short of downloading each of my 500+ album covers from, say, Amazon.com, does anybody know of a program this guy might have used to achieve the above?

    Thanks!

    Windows Media Player 9 will do it for you.
    Click on "Copy from CD"
    Click on "Find Album Info" and WMP connects to the internet and (if available) collects the album image and track info.
    When you save to your HD, the folders are automatically given the album cover as their image.
