iTunes file naming question

Hi! I just got an ipod and have started ripping my CD collection.

When iTunes names an album something different than I want, is there a way to change the name without having to edit the info for each song? For example, if I rip a CD and want the album name to be "ABC" and iTunes calls it "XYZ", can I make this change more quickly than editing every single track? Thanks so much!

Yes, you can change the information.

Before you rip the CD, select all the songs on the CD, edit the information (Control+I), then just specify the new name for the CD. Just remember that to change the information for the entire album, you have to have all the songs selected. Now when you rip the CD, it will have the information you provided (instead of what iTunes found in the CDDB).

Ummm... when you pop in a CD for ripping in iTunes, the album title shows up on the left side column (along w/ library, radio station, 25 most recent, etc.), just change that name and you're set.

Either method listed above works, but the first method allows you edited other common information for the cd that the second method doesn't.
