No because it is using a kind of Hash code from the CD (when it's in the drive) to connect to the database (Sony use a kind of CDDB very like FreeDB) and get the song names, genre, year of the album etc. So if you already did the mp3, it will show thoses fields if they are properly entered in the ID3 tags, but it won't be able to connect to the database to get more information.
Right now, the only way I know to put album cover is to scan them on a PC and transfer them with an USB memory drive, then on the PS3, you import them as picture, you go in each album and you assign the pictures (as soon as you assign one song from one album, all the other follow. Then you can delete the pictures from the picture folder on the PS3 as they become embedded in the song themselves.
It's working with AAC files I ripped from CD on the PS3 anyway.
