    I have ripped alot of cd's that had no album info due to the fact that they
    were burned w/o details to begin with. How can a guy get just song info off
    of an "ALBUM" that is "Unknown" due to the fact that it was a personal 'mix'?

    When you use Find Album Info, there is an option to edit the information for
    the album when no matching album is found.

    Yeah, but my situation is different. I don't want the "album" info I want the
    info on the individual tracks that are on the albums which all have been
    burned on a different system, and there is multiple 'artests' on each mix!
    HOW DO I FIX THAT!

    Make sure the tracks for the custom collection are in one folder alone. Edit
    each track in Advanced Tag Editor to set the album name to be the same -
    whatever you want to name the album. Set the album artist to be the same for
    each track; typically this is going to be Various Artists.

    Now do the search like I said. WMP won't (or at least shouldn't) find your
    album and you will have the option to edit all the track information. You
    can right-click on any single track and choose to find the album information
    for that track. If you can find the information for that track, you can
    download the album art for the track; WMP will store multiple album art
    images in the album; one for each identified track. The last one, by
    default, will end up being the Folder.jpg that shows in the album view of
    WMP. Replace Folder.jpg with whatever art you want there, and make it
    read-only.

    Not helping me. Everytime I try to find the album info, I find each separate
    album and click next and proceeds to replace all of the song titles with
    songs from the album. I can't figure out how to have multiple albums.
