Sometimes the columns (album title, tracks' titles, artist 's name, etc.) are
not automatically populated when the computer (attempts to) read my CD.
1. Do I need to always be connected to the internet for the columns to
automatically populate?
2. Even if I'm connected on line and columns don't populate, HOW do I
manually input this info so album/tracks are easily identified? Otherwise,
when I go to Copy to CD or Device, I have an ongoing list of "Track 01, 02,
03...Track 01, 02, 03, etc."
reflecting a succession of CDs successfully burned to my hard drive.

Yes, it can't pull the data out of the air.

Album Wizard

You can also manually edit tracks in the Library using the Edit or
Advanced Tag Editor commands on the right-click context menu
