I use EasyTAG 2.1.4 from the Kubuntu 8.10 repository for all my tagging.
I have it set to write only ID3v2.3 tags with ISO-8859-1 charset. I don’t write ID3v1 tags. I don’t have CRC or compression set. AFAIK, Sansa players don’t understand ID3v2.4 at all.
To get embedded art to work, I use a jpg of 200x200 pixels or less, and <20kB in size. I don’t know what the actual limits are - I haven’t bothered experimenting that much. But if I use large® jpegs, it seems not to work.
If you’re bothered about Fuze’s ‘Display Art in Lists’ setting working, I think you need to put a Folder.jpg in the album’s folder. As Tapeworm says, this will also get picked up as album art.
On a different issue with EasyTAG, the Fuze seems not to recognise some genre tags written by EasyTAG. There is nothing wrong with the tag itself, since it is read fine by other players & apps (WMP among them). Indie & Folk are some that the Fuze fails to understand.
Edit: I’ve just checked - and I have one image of 35.3k 200x200 that displays OK.
