Album art - a consensus?

So, as an owner now of a Sansa Sport, Zip and Fuze+, I find that if I drag and drop an album which won't display artwork on my Sport, it will be the same for the Zip and Fuze+. 

I have read all the suggestions on here, keeping the artwork to certain dimensions, under a certain size, using JPGs and imbedding the artwork using an old Creative media program. I also rename them album.art.jpg or folder.jpg.

This usually works best I would say maybe 1 or 2% just won't play ball.

So, should I just admit defeat with these albums or are there other fixes?

I would love to gather up everyone's opinion and suggestions on this so I know I have tried everything!

Maybe try downloading album art from the website "discogs".  Those embedded jpg files work well on my Clip Sport.

It would also be nice if embedded cover images could be display for Ogg/Vorbis files, it looks like the player doesn't do this at the moment,or is it woring for anyone ?

Apparently the normal way to do this is add them to the tag as a comment, described here: https://wiki.xiph.org/VorbisComment#METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE
