Album art, track info applied from wrong album

    I have a few treasured rips from little-known labels. For instance, Ron
    Eschete's jazz quintet doing their very tasteful interpretations of Beatles
    titles. Problem is, WMP 11 thinks this album is 101 Strings' covers, and
    overwrote the [tediously typed-in] album information including cover art,
    track numbers and titles. Similar trouble with old Columbia Great
    Performances CD reissues of LP albums, and paid downloads from Amazon.
    Can I protect my rips from this mutilation, or provide updated
    information to the stores?
    P.S. Whatever happened to WMP>Help>About>version number? And the hokey but
    cool eye candy onscreen in the 'Now Playing" tab that was in XP? Sorry to
    add this whiny footnote but I'm suffering a little future shock here...clues
    welcome.

    Cobalt, you jerk. Buy your albums from Microsoft-approved vendors! Have you
    considered switching to recent Country or Hip-Hop?
