You might want to convert the old .wma files as they are not very
This is done with a different program. It may be easier to just
re-rip them after you change to mp3.

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
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 change that.....

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

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.
