    Yesterday I took several of my blues music cd's and copied several of my favorite selections to my HD as MP3 files. More than half of the selections show up as not recognized titles. Simply renaming the files does not seem to work. Is there anyway to get the correct names so that I can re-burn the cd with all the correct information. One of the songs (Marcia Ball, Hot Tamale Baby) shows up as "Shoji Meguro, Airport". :confused: How on earth Marcia Ball can be mistaken for Shoji Megure (whoever that is) is beyond me!.

    The files are not properly tagged. What did you use to rip the CDs? I use Musicmatch because it does a lookup before ripping. I think WMP will tag the files also.

    If WMP or Musicmatch dont have the CD in its database you can also download MP3 Tag.
    Nifty little program which can tag full albums by searching the database from Amazon.com, Amazon.de, and you can also get the id from freedb and it'll tag the album as well.

    The program lets me name the file. It is a bit cumbersome to use but I only had a few songs to alter. Thanks for the info.
