The first thing I do when faced with missing media information is…nothing. Album and song info usually appear immediately in the Player Library when you rip a CD, but art can sometimes take longer to appear.
If a day goes by and you still don’t find the album art or information you’re looking for in the Player Library, use the Find Album Information wizard. To launch the wizard, right-click the album art (which is still, most likely, the "musical note" placeholder art), and then click Find album info.
Your specific experience with the wizard depends on how much information you already have in the Player Library. When only a few media attributes are missing, the wizard can typically fill in the rest for you. For example, if you have correct album and song information but no album art, the wizard can usually find an exact match. Review the information that the wizard finds. If it’s what you want, click Finish. The wizard automatically updates any inconsistent media information and adds the correct art.
If some of the song information in the Player Library is different from the information the wizard finds online, the wizard allows you to pair each unmatched track with the correct track. The existing tracks in the Player Library appear on the left side of the wizard. The wizard’s suggestions for matching tracks appear on the right side. Scroll through the suggested tracks and click the one you want, or click Edit to add your own information. Once you’ve matched all of the unmatched tracks, click Next to see the updated information for each song, and then click Finish to save these changes.
Occasionally, no media information appears after you rip a CD, leaving you with an untitled album and untitled songs. You can still use the wizard, but you’ll need to enter the album artist or album name in the Search box, and then click the Search button. The wizard generates a list of possible album matches for you. Select the album that’s a match, make any necessary track changes, and then click Finish.
When all or most of the media information is missing, enter the album artist or album title in the Search box to see a list of possible matches
