    Guys, I know this topic has been passed around by others, but I have a very strange situation.

    I recorded 4 files for my Singing exam being taken tomorrow in Audio In on my ibook (with a hardware interface) in order to get the recordings from Analogue to CD. I labeled them : If I loved you, On the street where you live, Cry me a river & Tit Willow. All as different files. When I burned the disk, everything was fine. I've now transfered the disk to my emac and the screen shot lables the disk as "too fast, too loud, too old F**k off!" and the tracks are also labeled names that I have never seen before. What could possibly be the explination? Please help you guys. I have included shots for your perusal.

    It just looks like that is the CD name that iTunes pulled up when it queried CDDB. It's not a virus, just that somehow there was another CD on CDDB that had almost exactly the same track lengths. Just type in the appropriate names, and you will be fine. :)

    Oh thank god for that. I thought it was a little random. So is the CDDB not written into the CD itself then?

    just no taste...

    ... or perhaps you have a extremely rare emac with 'artifcial intelligence' switched on, that simply doesn't like your singing... :D

    Nope. The CDDB compares how long the tracks are and how many, and then tries to get a match from its on-line database.

    hehe...thanks for that. Luckily, the singing itself wasn't on the CD's so unless it's the rumblings of the piano it doesn't like... *hmm*

    Thanks for your help though. Much appreciated.
