  • Hi MoMan Duncan,

    When you are connected to the Internet, the Player attempts to retrieve media information (such as the album and artist name) about the tracks being ripped from a Windows Media database that is maintained by Microsoft. The Player then adds the information to the files during ripping. If media information is incorrect or missing, you can add or edit it after ripping. For information about adding or editing media information, see Windows Media Player Help.

  • Did you burn the CD as an audio CD, or as a data CD containing MP3 files? You can check by navigating to the CD drive in Explorer and checking the file type of the tracks.
