Default Load music and mablum art into radio

I have a new RAM 3500 with the 430N entertainment system. I have transfered some music from my iTunes with a USB flash drive but it did not transfer the album art.
Is there a way to to just use the iPod as a "hard drive" to transfer music and album art directly to the radio? If not, I can transfer the music with the flash drive, but is there a way to also transfer the album art?
Thanks!

I have the 430 (Sales Code RBZ) stereo and have been fighting with that very issue since I bought the vehicle a week ago. Here's what I have done that hasn't worked:

1). Placed the album cover .jpg into the same folder as the MP3 files for said album on my USB stick
1a). Copied all music from USB to HDD
1b). After this didn't work I deleted all music from HDD

2). Using a program called: "MP3 TagTools v1.2" to edit the ID3 Tags for each song to include the album art for each song. This makes the icon (on my Windows PC) for the song display the album cover rather than the standard "Music Note" icon.
2a). Copied all music from USB to HDD

From doing EXHAUSTIVE research on the internet I can't find anything that says album art can display for songs brought over to the HDD through a USB device. The only references to album art I CAN find is when ripping a CD directly on the stereo into the HDD. The only reason I thought it might be possible is because when playing MP3's that I transferred through my USB stick it displays the standard music file icon on the stereo. I will keep plugging away at it and post any new findings.

Anybody know how to do this? I just got my new 1500 Laramie CC this past week and am looking into loading up the HD with my mp3 favorites.... any tips to make sure they are tagged properly so my 430-RBZ radio displays the proper album cover?

I have continued to research this and even have some computer "geeks" from the dealership looking into it. The conclusion so far is that album art from iTunes/iPod cannot be imported into the radio. If we want the album art, we have to load it from the original CD.
