If you are connected to the internet it should be doing it automatically

In iTunes go to Preferences. In the opening menu make sure connect to the internet when necessary is checked.

You can also just click Advanced and Get CD Track Names

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

You have to highlight the tracks you want info on, first.

And the other cool thing I did this weekend: drag album covers for each album from Amazon.com. now, when a song plays, it shows the album cover!!! So cool!!!!

There's a program that automatically loads up the album art covers on the itunes. Here you go. Never tried it myself. I prefer to get it from amazon by manually dragging it as well. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14971

If I've chosen 'automatically get track names' in my itunes preferences, does it get the song track as the cd is ripping, or afterwards? I have it set to do it automatically, but it doesn't seem to be doing it automatically. I'm used to Windows XP and putting in a cd, having the track names come up automatically, and then having it start to rip. I'm now having to click on 'advanced' and 'get cd track names' and also having to go back and click 'get album artwork'. Am I doing something incorrectly?

It should do it when you put the CD in, just like you're used to.

I have a widget that does all that for me. It searches amazon sites (you can select the store manually) - and if it comes up with a cover, you can simply click a button and it will apply it to all the songs in that album. Pretty nifty. The widget is called Amazon Art. It's helped me out many times, and it's stable and reliable. No messing around with preferences or switching apps- it's all done directly through the widget.

I should put a caveat in here that in some cases, the entries in the internet database that populates iTunes' track listings are incorrect.

For mainstream stuff they should be okay, but I've had boxed sets (the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations set is one example) where the track listing that iTunes pulled was one track off from the actual CDs. I imagine this is due to either an entry error (anyone can submit track names to the database) or the fact that different editions of CDs get issued over the years.

It's something that seldom happens, but it's something worth watching for.
