Well, Randy, I kind of have it figured out. I get glimpses of
light, then get lost in the fog.
The first CD I ripped was a non-commercial one which is why
it came up as unknown artist. Then I tried a second one and that
one did exactly as you all said- listed the title, artist and
minutes. But..... I was unable to copy and paste it to a thumb
Also I have to work a bit to understand what format it is- I
am guessing it is not MP3. Thus I have to find my way to how to

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 was! LOL

This is why I figured she had a non comercial burned
disk or something.
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.
