    Hello Stephen,

    Let me inform you that most CD's already have metadata about the song and artists but if it doesn't then we can edit the song information manually.

    Follow the steps below:

    • Double-click a song you would like to edit. Windows Media Player displays a table containing columns such as Length, Contributing Artist, Genre and Release Year.

    • Right-click a value in a column you'd like to edit and click "Edit." For example, if you want to change the name of the album that contains the song, right-click the existing name in the Album column and click "Edit” to view a text box.
    • Type a new value in the text box that appears after clicking a column’s value. Repeat this process for all columns you wish to update.

    Hope it helps.

    Old Media Player problem on Windows 10 64-bit home edition


    I was able to do it this way.
    Note: This will only work if after you rip 3rd CD of a set the songs are correct when played, but all the information is not correct.

    (1) Put the CD into the computer and let Media Player rip it. Play the CD through Media Player to make sure that the songs are the ones that are actually on the CD. Not the ones that are listed.

    (2) Go to the actual file – not the library – the file path is (C:/Users/your user file (mine is Di)/Music. In that file will be all you all your music listed by album. In each album file will be the song list. Check to see if the album you just ripped is there. It will be listed under to wrong name and the songs in that file will be also wrong. Make sure that they are listed as “Media Player Audio file (.wma) and that it opens with Windows Media Player. If not change it to.

    (3) Go to Media Player again and check that album to edit it. What comes up is a spot that you can edit everything. I changed the name slightly (mine from the “Very Best Songs” to “Best Songs”). There is also a spot where you can check if this album is part of a disk set. The one I wanted to change is disk #3, so I changed the number to 3.

    (4) From there you have to correct each song name / artist / and any other info you want to be listed. Once I had everything listed how I wanted to be, I put that album information onto a flash drive. Better that having to everything again.

    (5) Now I let Media Player again rip the first CD so that the album info was correct in my music file. I again saved the 1st album onto my flash drive.

    (6) Now listed my music file was album #1 with all the correct songs / info listed. Album #3 was also listed with the new name and the corrected songs / info. Album #2 was also listed with the correct songs / info. MAKE SURE OF THIS. Save album #2 to your flash drive.

    (7) Now check Media Player and all 3 albums will be listed, with the correct songs / info. A plus is that the album picture will be there and it will be marked as Disk 3.

    (8) Now you can play disk #3 and it will PLAY. Plus you will backup copies of all 3 disks on a flash Drive.

    I hope that this works for you. It did for me. Good Luck.
