    I was trying to rip an original CD from Kelly Clarkston through iTunes, but when it asked to be copied, it showed obscure song titles. So I went ahead and ejected the CD and tried again, but the information was already filed and stored somewhere. How can I deleted this data, not meaning the song, but the data, so when I re-enter the CD to rip, I can choose another CD title listing to get the proper album art and song lists? I really appreciate it guys!!!

    just edit the information in iTunes and it will change that database. or you can just select all the tracks and go to Advanced menu and select get cd track names.

    I tried it but still not able to get the correct songs automatically titled or the album art. I just need to delete the stored files, to start afresh, so I can choose the proper Kelly Clarkson Breakaway selection on my original CD rip

    As i said, select all the tracks in the album, go to the advanced menu and choose get CD track names. It should pull up that menu to select the correct CD. IT can either be the CD or the mp3 files themselves. Worse comes to worse, you would have to input the info by hand. Not that big of deal to have the need to start over.

    The following file stores the information:

    /Users/username/Library/Preferences/CD Info.cidb

    I recommend not to delete the file. You can solve your problem much easier the way lostless suggested. But you choose what you want to do. :)
