    Whenever I attempt to import songs via CD that were ripped from a PC onto my Mac, iTunes/Gracenotes is unable to find track names. They were ripped from iTunes, so I'm not sure why this is.

    Is it a known issue? Any work-rounds?

    Thanks.

    I don't believe it sends the ripped "album" to the CDDB database. Try using winamp (in the winamp preferences there is an option to send the details to the database.

    iTunes does actually store the CDID used for the Gracenote lookup in a custom tag when you rip a CD. Have you tried "Get Track Names" on the affected files? It should performa a Gracenote lookup and update the tags if they were changed locally or updated on the server.

    Wait one noddly-cotton second, are you guys saying Gracenote should work with custom playlists on CDs? I thought it only worked with commercial albums and re-burns of said albums.

    Erm, do these exist as already-compressed files on the PC? If so, burn it as a data disc.

    Yeah, people certainly shouldn't be submitting custom CDs! :eek:
