    The best way to do this is to insert the CD while the computer's online, in which case iTunes will automatically give the songs their correct information.

    The CD is probably not in the CDDB system then. You'll have to hand-type the info...

    Which you can do by selecting doing a Get Info (Command-I) on the songs in question and filling in the information there.:D

    Try this: select the album in the iTunes browser, so that only songs from that album (and all the songs from that album) are showing. Select all the songs from the album (so that they are highlighted) and then choose Advanced -> Get Track Names.

    You should either get track names or a message saying they could not be found.

    First I would select the songs in question and go to the advanced menu and click 'get track names from cddb'. (which must be done while online)

    if that doesn't work, then you will have to type in by hand. for the track names, it is easiest to select the track and press the little enter button to the right of your space bar. (or at least it is on my powerbook; dont confuse the enter key with the return key)

    that method works well for track name. for artist name you can select all the tracks, ctrl-click and then go to 'get info'. if you type in the artist and album name, it will apply that to all tracks.

    Download Clutter (search the forums for it or google it) While the song is playing it searches amazon and then you press i think ctrl + shift+K and it will add it to the song...
    is there software that will fix the ID3 tags based on the info you provided. most of my songs don't have album name.
