    I just want to remind all that the iMusic forum is under the Creative MUG Stuff category. Meaning, it is meant for discussions related to the creation of content (sound, music and podcasts too), on a Macintosh computer. iPod-related talk should be in the iPodders forum, iTunes stuff should be in iApps and the rest should go to OT Central. Thanks.

    Try Get CD Track Names on your iTunes Advance Menu.

    Since the CD's that you have are compilations there may be instances wherein using the Get CD Track Names menu item might not work. You could try using iEatBrainz since you'll be ripping your CD's into MP3. The application will try to match the acoustic fingerprint of each song to the information that is in the MusicBrainz database. It's a free app and it's fairly accurate.
