how do i prevent this
Are you seeing Japanese album & title tracks when ripping original CD ? I have come across this & also a situation where the CD selected for copying comes up (albeit in English) as a completely different album.
Solution is simple -
1. Connect to Internet
2. Start Media Player & insert CD
3. See the title of the CD (or Japanese !) in the far left hand column, at the bottom, alongside a disk icon.
4. Select the title & right click
5. Select the option "Find Album Info"
6. Key album title into web enquiry screen - make sure it is the right one !
7. Select & press FINISH key
8. Both the screen in Media Player & the source location (if synced) will be updated with correct data.
