As your discs have never been submitted to a database they won't be able to pick up the track names. However you can submit it yourself. Put your disc in and in iTunes go to Advanced > Submit CD Track Names

Thanks for the reply.

The way im reading that is if i were to create my playlist then submit it to Gracenote then the Mac will then transfer the track names to disc? That correct?

Seemed to work fine when I was using my Windows Desktop.
