View Full Version : Any way to TELL Gracenote what my CD is?

I know how the Gracenote database works with actual CDs. What if I want to import a Burned copy of a CD--not a mix-cd, but an exact copy of a CD that is in the Gracenote database (I checked on the website)? If it really goes by length of the album and tracks, then it should be able to find my burned CDs in the database. But what if it doesn't?

It doesn't make sense that iTunes can't insert track names, even when I tell it quite clearly that these sixteen tracks make up such-and-such album by you-know-who artist. Anybody know of a way to accomplish this?

[edit]
OK, I see what you mean. If the track numbers and lengths are exactly the same as the original CD then Gracenote should find it. If not then it'll have to be done manually. Perhaps you could submit a feature request for this to Apple?

I think he was looking for an option of being able to tell iTunes "Hey, this burned disc is "With Teeth" by NIN" so that iTunes will automatically add all the meta data upon import just like if he was importing from the actual "With Teeth" disc.

OK, if you're running a Mac then these CDDB Safari Kit (http://www.dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=cddbsafarikit) AppleScripts should do the job you want!
