    Been loading my CD's and hit a couple of issues.

    One CD, a Mozart symphony, is incorrectly identified as Tracy Chapman! I can't find a way to tell MCE it is wrong, and key in the correct info.

    I had the same problem with this CD under Windows Media Player, but at least there there is a way to correct the error.

    Also got a few Unknown Artist/Unkown Album. I did get the chance to enter artist/album at load time, but I choose to skit it, meaning to come back later. But again I cant find a way of doing that now.

    Can thgis be done?

    TIA

    There is an option to Edit Details (I think that's the menu name) when you are in the track listing of the album. In there you can amend the artist name.

    Thanks, overlooked that somehow.

    Is there a way to change the album art?

    THe WMP database is the same as the MCE database so you can do all your editing in WMP and it will be reflected in MCE.

    The album art is a file called folder.jpg placed in the folder where the music files are. Any file you call folder.jpg and put in the folder both WMP and MCE will pick up and use as the album art.

    Have you tried Album Art Fixer from www.alsoft.nl. It fixes all the problems you mention and a lot more besides. It's brilliant!
