    More Info (MSN/AMG data) for the second disc of multi disc albums, such as
    most complilations or eg. Mobys new Hotel album, is not shown. This is true
    for all multi disc albums I've tried, and it happens eventhough the disc is
    identified correctly during ripping or "Find Album Info" searches.

    MSN Music lists all discs and tracks when a track on disc number 1 is
    selected, but when a track on disc 2 is selected, no info is found.

    It has been like this (at least) ever since WMP9 was released.

    Thanks,

    Well, like I tried to say, the data is there -- it is found and shown
    correctly during the rip process and MSN Music also contains (most of) the
    data. It is just that MSN lists both discs when a track on disc 1 is
    selected, but they don't want to know of any disc 2...

    So actually the problem seams to be related to MSN Music, right?

    And actually I feel that the database is getting better - it finds more of
    my CDs, apart from non-English ones.

    Thanks,

    Well, let us just agree that the online database and the local WMP library
    leaves very much to be desired. I totally agree with all complaints listed on
    your blog (http://msmvps.com/thinice/articles/16084.aspx) and hope that they
    will be corrected soon!
