I'm butting my head against the wall which is WMP.
I've set my house up so I can stream audio from my Vista machine to my audio system. WM CENTER
is the default program which my amp and network TV looks for, apparently. That's fine.
The process of loading audio content seems to be that I insert a CD, rip it in WM PLAYER
which loads into its library, and then WM CENTER
imports the library contents. While it is ripping, I can select "download album info" and that imports all the song names, album title, etc. Once WM CENTER
has it, I can set playlists, etc., search based on ratings, name, etc.
The problem I have is importing a custom mix cd.
If I insert a custom mix cd, WMP labels everything "Track 1, Track 2," etc. The cd gains the title "Unknown Title", "Unknown Artist", etc.
How do I get WM CENTER
to automatically download the track titles and associated information? Individually selecting every track and entering all the information for that track is asinine in this day and age. The information exists. I don't mind pointing (linking?) each track to its associated online information, but I have no clue how, or if, WM CENTER
can do that. So far, it seems it can ONLY import information as a whole album.
(In fact, another, associated problem, is that WM CENTER now thinks one of my custom cd's is an album. I cannot get WMC to stop mis-labeling the cd and all the tracks. Grrrr!!!)
How do I import track information, for individual tracks?
How do I dis-associate the wrong album information from a custom cd? (A mix cd.)
