    I have vista 64 bit with Windows Media Player 11. I am seeing some very
    frustrating behavior

    1) Rip CD as normal
    2) Ripping progresses as expected, except the cd information (album, song,
    etc.) are not exposed. It just says unknown artist, etc. When I try to
    update, it finds the correct album, etc. but it does not update the
    information in WMP
    3) once ripping is finished, I can navigate to the music in my music folder
    ( shows up as unknown with data), but it does not end up in my library.

    I have tried numerous times, rebooting, etc. very annoying. And there is no
    way to uninstall WMP and reinstall...again, very annoying!

    Yes it did - I found that answer in a KB article later that same day and
    implemented the fix. APpreciate you weighing in.
