CD Ripped, files not imported to Library

    On one (and only one) CD, which I ripped, the files in the resulting folder
    in User | Music don't produce a new album in my Vista 64 bit Ultimate WMP11.
    Instead, the files for this album get added to another album by the same
    composer in the library.

    All the other CD folders appear to have been handled correctly.

    How did it happen, and how can I fix this?

    There is no information about the content on the CD itself.
    A clever guy found out that the combination of the number of tracks and the
    duration of each track almost uniquely identifies a CD, kind of DNA.
    This makes it possible to lookup information about a CD in a internet
    database.
    Sometimes it fails or you get the wrong info.

    Do a manual search (find album info) before you rip
