    Find Album Info in WMP11 never worked very well. It did the job but was
    horrible. Microsoft have, without telling me at least, radically changed it
    (about three weeks ago?). My first impression was that it was quicker and
    smarter.

    As is the nature of these things there are now new problems. Before if I
    ripped in a 2 CD album it would want to use the words Disc 1 and Disc 2 after
    the album name. Now for some unknown reason it's Vol 1 and Vol 2. I haven't
    figured out if it is going to convert my tags from 'Disc x' to 'Vol x' but it
    seems to be working alright so far. I've got a lot of albums and I would hate
    the to get screwed up.

    Is there any help or info on the subject?

    Actually it's worse than I thought. Take the 3 CD compilation 'The Essential
    Bruce Springsteen' as an example. I had it listed as a bunch of files
    numbered and tagged from 1 to 42 which I had created in Tag&Rename (excellent
    program). OK I thought it would be nice to get WMP11 to retag them into the 3
    original CD's.

    It started well by recognizing them as Vol 1, Vol 2 and Vol 3 and making
    separate listings in the WMP library, but then as it finished it stripped
    away the Volume categories it had just created and dumped the renumbered
    tracks into one library album folder so there were 3 track 1's, three track
    2's etc all lumped confusingly together.

    When i went into the the explorer folder view the album tag was the same for
    all tracks and the track numbers had not been changed. If I just leave this
    will the system sort it all out or has it messed things up?
