    What happens if you use the "Get Album Info" or "Find Album Info" button?

    It finds the album, but does not know the tracks . . . the really sad part is
    that I know the track data is on the CD and there seems to be no way to use
    it. It is nice that MSN has found a way to make me have to connect to them
    each time I use the player . . . okay they win. Woudn't it be nice now if
    they would allow a user to look at there own friggin CD and transfer the
    track data? Can you show me how? Sorry for the rant and thank you in advance
    for your help and patience while I rant!!!!

    No. The text on the CD is CDText. It requires extensions to the standard
    Audio CD scheme that the system CD reader does not support. So "MSN" or
    "Whatever Service" is utterly irrelevant. Since CDText is not supported, a
    service must be contacted. That idea goes back 8-10 years now - it's pretty
    standard. =\

    So: click Edit Info, I guess. Fix up the data in the Find Album Info
    wizard...

    I'm having the same problems, I contacted Dell, who will contact Microsoft
    and send me files by email codecs? I will keep you updated.

    I had the same problem, & probably will, again, but what worked for me was to
    pop the cd in, WITHOUT opening media player first, then when the dialog box
    asks what to do, have it "play cd in windows media player", but make sure
    your're already connected to the internet, so media player can immediately
    grab the info, instead of wandering around inside itself looking for info
    that isn't there. So, THAT'S what worked for me, hope it works for you, good
    luck.
