@Ibrahimbo101 unfortunately this can't be reproduced on my test Samsung devices on Android 12 (including S10@Exynos). I test on default Poweramp (and system) settings, so it may be some option affecting this - so please backup Poweramp settings and send to gpmaxmpz@gmail.com.

Does this happen for the specific song or all songs affected? What is the source of the song (sd card, internal memory)?

Note that there can be a delay in notification update if image is downloaded at the moment (Poweramp will update notification only after download completes or fails).

- All of my songs affected it doesn't even update the song name in notification but keeps previous one till seeked manually 

- all of my songs embedded with thumbnails so it doesn't require downloading 

- my music folders are on external SD card most of them and 1 on internal storage 

-i'll send backup file in gmail

- another thing noticed everytime i skip to next song using bluettoth the equalizer reloads my Bluetooth present even if i set it to default no idea if that related but doesnt bother me

@Ibrahimbo101 thanks for the settings and details.

Spoiler

There is clearly a bug in Samsung Android 12 media notification, as ROM updates notification only when notification is updated (logically), but not using any information from the notification itself (not so logically), but taking it from MediaSession (that is independent metadata about the song played. Android has like 3-4 of different metadata APIs written by different Android framework developer generations and we must use all of them, as they used in the different parts of Android randomly), which is updated at different time. Other Android 12 variants do notice MediaSession data change and update notification, but Samsung does not do that.

I added workaround in the next build-925.

Recently updated to build 925 and I am suddendly missing a ton of album artwork. Spent so much time adding this. What happened?

The downloaded artwork files will still be there, but your music has for some reason not scanned correctly at the start of the session - note the filenames without any Title/Artist/Album info, showing the file has been found but no tag data was read.

Once PA has fully loaded, try a Full Rescan in Settings > Library.

@Aaron Caldwell Android version is important as Android versions are very different in file access approach. When replying here, if no Android version provided, I assume the latest (11/12).

In your case I see some files are accessible, some not. I guess you just have no those files available (no sd card, sd card has different path, etc.). In this case use Settings / Library / Music Folders, select proper folders, then use Full Rescan. 

Still ensure app has file access: long press Poweramp icon / (i) / Permissions / File access - should be Allowed. Poweramp asks for this permission on start, but if that previously denied, or manually set to not allowed, or automatically removed by any tools, then no access to files allowed.

I woke up this morning and a vast number of files were missing album images again. Went to the music folders and found half of the folders de-selected for some reason. Artist A-J fine...artist H-Z un-selected.  I wonder what could be causing this all of a sudden?

@Aaron Caldwell unselecting folders in Music folders selection won’t affect your album art. Unselected folders and all the songs in them just disappear completely from Poweramp.

All music folders selection logic happens in that Music folders selection dialog, nothing outside of it can change it aside of resetting Poweramp data.

 I could see and play files but they had no image. 

When you say you could see and play files but they had no image, did the related song information also vanish? So for example you may have seen just a filename in your chosen category list - such as filenames ending in .mp3 or .flac showing in the Albums list but without any song Title, Artist, Album or Duration information. If so, something may have caused the filename entry to remain, but without any scanned tag data. Tag wording (such as Artist and Title or Album) provides the structure that PA uses to construct the filename that is used to access any previously downloaded and cached artwork from the internal album_art data folder.

A similar issue has come up recently in another thread about playlists (https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/23077-reset-phone-reloaded-playlists-playlists-have-no-artwork) so there could be some underlying common reason.
