    "download a store-bought CD"?

    When you buy a CD from the iTunes Music store, it will definitely come with track names, album art, etc. If you buy a regular CD and rip it to your computer, it SOMETIMES will give you the track names.

    If it doesn't, the only method I know is to manually put in the names. Not so bad really - highlight them all and hit command+i (or right-click + Get Info) to make large changes (i.e. all one artist, album, etc.). For individual track names, you can do Get Info for each song or just do a "slow double click" on the song name to change it.

    Hope that helps! :)

    You have to be connected to the internet for itunes to access the database. If you imported cd's when not connected that are in the database, highlight the album and go advanced>get cd track names. The database only works with complete and comercial albums, not mixes.

    Sometimes ituns won't recognize mine at first either. Get CD names does the trick just fine
