While I must say that I don't really understand the point of the question, the 
code you pasted (is that Basic?  Wow, been a while...) is an ID3v1 
implementation, not ID3v2.  ID3v1 is trivially easy since all fields are of 
fixed length and at the end of the file.  Not surprisingly, there are no 
images in ID3v1 tags.


Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.
