Windows Media Player fails to include album art for ripped CD

Using Windows 10 to rip CDs. Generally works pretty good but frequently fails to include album art. The best case involves a situation with a CD that Windows 7 had no problem ripping some years ago but can no longer do it. Looks like Microsoft took down the online CD database at fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com and replaced it with one at musicmatch-ssl.xboxlive.com. But I digress, the CD in question appears well known to Windows Media Player (WMP) on my Windows 10 computer. When it plays the CD it has no problem finding/displaying the album art. However, when I rip it the resulting folder contains NO album art (i.e., NO .jpg files). Note: it does appear as though WMP normally designates the album art as system files that may NOT appear in File Explorer but I do have File Explorer set to display them and I do see them in most of the music folders in WMP.

In fact, for WMP question, you’d better ask for help from Microsoft Community.

Must admit all of the different MS forums make things very confusing. Afraid I have no idea what the difference is. I believe the ones I was using referred me here but I'll try and figure out what "answers.microsoft.com" is about.

With respect to the reference that appears to pertain to the phenomenon I mentioned about album art files being designated as system files. That is NOT the problem I am having.

Thanks for responding.
