i have been ripping cd's to my computer and sometimes, after it is done, the
track names do not match the song. Anything i can do? I have tried to update
the album info and that has not helped.

Using Find Album Info to correct the data can slowly help correct the data
over time. But you can understand why it shouldn't instantaneously update
that with unconfirmed data/edits. =)

See http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.

If the CD's contain CD-Text you can install my plug-in and WMP will read the
CD-Text tags from the CD's:
