Just a guess, but this may be the fact that iTunes has a bug in its  
synch safe integer implementation (it doesn't use them, basically),  
so it ends up writing invalid lengths for images which messes things  
up in some cases.  WMP may have a work around for the iTunes bug.

What are the sizes of the images that aren't being read properly?
