I suspect the missing art is down to the ripping. You could convert everything to flac, but you'd still need to manually edit them to add the art, so yu may as well do that with the WAVs (mp3tag now supports WAV).
Or, depending on your music server, you may be able to get away with just adding the cover art into the album folders (as cover.jpg or folder.jpg). I know minimserver will use that if there is no art in the music files.

RE: best format to get album images
Hi
I am using itunes at the moment and saving them in wav.
I want to know if there is a better way to save and play my music
I have a iphone which I use to control iTunes with at the moment
But when I use the kinsky app on my laptop it sounds better then iTunes
But its not as user friendly as iTunes .
I have a android tablet as well as a iphone

There might be music databases you can subscribe to, which add all missing metadata to your files automatically. Really today this should be the way to go instead of adding everything manually one by one.

If that's not feasible, you could also try to have a script automatically query a 'database' such as discogs.com (or even google image search) with each Artist&Album name (read from your folder structure), and simply save the first image the webpage returns, into the folder. I once did this with Artist pictures, and it worked in 90% of cases. So I only had to do 10% manually.
