RB has (optional) support for writing ID3 tags, but I don't know if
this is active by default or not in Fedora core 9.  You could also
double check your mp3 files are not read only.

That fact that something has changed suggests RB is editing them.  Why
do you say they have been removed?  Perhaps RB has written valid ID3
v2.4 tags that your other software cannot understand?

It will look in the folder containing the music for suitably named
images, then on Amazon.  There is code on Bug 345975 to read covers
embedded in the ID3 tags themselves.
