Question Windows Media Player downloading wrong track list for my CD!
Hi everyone. I have a CD that I sometimes listen to while playing the computer. Anyway, you know how Windows Media Player will download the track list and everything from the Internet? Well, it's downloading the right track list but the names of the tracks are not in the right order. They're all mixed up and so it's hard to tell what song I am trying to play. For example, I'll click a song to play it because I recognize the song name and it ends up playing a different song on the CD. The CD is actually a 2 CD pack called "Songs 4 Worship: Shout to the Lord The Greatest Praise & Worship Songs of All Time". I don't know if this is a problem unique to these 2 CDs or what but I have the original CDs and Windows Media Player has had this problem with these CDs ever since I first used the CDs in my computer. What can I do to fix this? I'd really appreciate any advice because apparently Windows Media Player is having an error during the download of the track list. Any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Telecom, I had already looked at the Windows Media Player Support Site on Microsoft but couldn't find anything helpful. Anyway, I did figure out a way to manually edit the track names and artists so that it matches what's on the back of the CD case. It's a good enough solution but I still wish I knew why Windows Media Player downloaded the wrong track list in the first place. It was downloading the track list for the right CD but for some reason, AMG apparently has the track list in the wrong order.
