iTUNES CD Info Question

I have imported some CDs using iTunes while not connected to the internet. So, iTunes was unable to get the CD's information (ie title of CD and track names). However, when I connected tot he internet, and tried to get the CD track names, it tells me the info is unavailable.
Anybody have a solution for this?
Thanks.

Re: iTUNES CD Info Question

It's possible that your cd is not listed in the database. Is it an uncommon cd?

If not, then if you have a firewall it may not be allowing the appropriate communication.

They are common CDs- Nirvana "Nevermind" is one. When i'm connected to the net, I have no problem getting the track names when I import the songs. It's when i import offline, then connect to the interenet, that iTunes won't/can't find the track names.

I don't think iTunes stores the CD names on the PC. It checks CDDB everytime you put in a CD. So you have to be connected to get the names.

There's your problem. You need to be connected when you import the songs, because that's when the file names are created. The CDDB is now seeing individual files, not the entire CD, which is what is needed to identify the disc.

I think your only option is to reimport the tracks, connecting to the Internet when you do so. Otherwise you'll have to manually change the file names, which means a lot of typing.

Even if you take the mp3s you have and burn an audio CD in the exact order as the original CD, CDDB will not recognize the CD since it is not EXACT as the original CD. If you do a CD-copy though, then CDDB will recognize the copied CD.

Anyway, it shouldn't take too long to enter data (unless you have many CDs ripped). All you have to do is type in the track names individually; the artist name, album name, etc. can be mass entered by selecting all -> Get Info -> enter data.

Or try and use a tagging program.

They are pretty good at figuring out songs/cds
