Hi, did you get this figured out?
Brian: Yeah, like you said though it automaticly pops up with the
artist info so I think even a beginner would just press next to
accept the first option.
the WMP part of my instructions was for the mp3 tags so media
players would have the correct artist and song info. Just changing
the file names wont do this. but it has been so long since I
messed with a actual CD things may have changed.
God! I remember when I first put over 200 CD's on my PC When I
figured out I could do that. Back then artists didnt always come
up correctly. Sometimes it would have 3 different artists for a CD
and I would have to find one of the kids to tell me witch one it

Well, I presumed complete beginner. If the situation you
describe is the case then my approach is always just to rip it
first then do the cleanup on the files ripped afterward. It's
been a very long time since I last had to do this, but if memory
serves, audio CDs that WMP cannot find media information for will
end up under the "Various Artists" folder and get some sort of
generic title like "Album 1". I find it a grand PITA to try to do
the track name creation in WMP so after I get to the folder for
Various Artists I just rename the folder for the album I just
ripped to something that makes sense to me, then I open that
folder and go track by track and rename the individual files. I
find file explorer much easier to use for that task.
Others will, however, prefer to do it in WMP. It's been so long
since I've done that for any reason I can't even begin to describe
the process. I'd have to get a mix CD that someone made for me
and try it again.
