    For complicated reasons, I had to resinstall OS X, and as I am on dial-up and couldn't download the latest iTunes (nor would I have wanted to, but anyway) I am now working with iTunes 4.8.

    Anyway, it's fine, but I have recently noticed that it forgets the title of music CDs I play in it. As I'm on dial-up, I used to be able to to connect to the net, get the CDDB names for a CD, disconnect, then iTunes would remember the track names when I reinserted the CD at a later date, whether I was online or not.

    Now it has stopped doing this, and I need to connect to the net each time I insert the same CD.

    Is this fixable?

    Thanks in advance

    I have noticed that iTunes has been doing this for a while. Not sure of a workaround. I get frustrated by it as well.

    Sorted: binned the info.cidb file. iTunes has its memory back.

    I didn't know anyone still had dialup. I feel for you.

    You've definitely been spoiled with broadband :p

    I'm glad the OP worked it out. I had that problem a few versions ago and couldn't figure out how to get past that. Thanks!
