    hi guys
    i use media player 10
    today i brought the meteora album from on of my freinds
    the files were not having the album information, the files were in wma format
    i added the songs to my media library and they were added as unknown tracks with unknown album
    i then just changed the album name for all of them to meteora and woosh even not within a second they had all the data like track name,singer , composer and even the photo of the album
    i hav a 24 hour net connection so i was connected to net at that time but my speed are just 5KBps, so they connot download the data that fast
    i have checked the option for retiereve file information from net

    whats the point of ur thread ?
    anyways the internet lookup must be going on in the background ... so i guess u entering the name of the album and the info comin up at the time was coincidence
    bcuz for this u dun need to put in anything
    once an original cd is detected ( ofcourse) these players look it up on the net and provide u with all the info required
    yes along WITH album covers too !

    :SHOCK:
    :x
    first of all u need an ORIGINAL cd
    not a copy .. not written at home
    RETAIL !
    then u open WMP10/musicmatch jukebox
    in MMJB in options theres an option to enable IMDB lookup ( did i get that wrong? )
    in wmp goto tools=> options => privacy
    under enhanced playback and device experience enable display media information from the internet !

    Raven if u read technteen's post properly u can find that he copied the wma files of cd or hdd something. I don't think we get original audio files in wma format do we ?? I just wantd to know how to get its info filled in the tag in wmp. Btw I have wmp 10.

    :oops:
    mustve skipped that
    anyways its the same procedure :D
    since it was ripped from the original cd
    and WMA is WMP's standard and copyright codec ..
    they must be storing some info ... or a "code" to the song/album/artist
    which they look up in a central database !!!
    still a simple task :p
    also windows media files also have TAG support
    heres something i found http://www.mediamonkey.com/product.htm
    im guessin dbpoweramp can do the same thing
    also there are "metadata tags" inserted in wma files
    see here how to extract them http://blogs.msdn.com/tims/articles/100730.aspx
    can also use registry to enable/disbale cd/dvd / media file lookup
    see here http://www.winguides.com/forums/sho...Number=97235&page=4&view=collapsed&sb=5&part=
    more here http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnwmt/html/wm_metadata_usage.asp


    my apologies again !
