Media Player CD Identification Problems
I borrowed a CD called "One Hit Wonders" from a co-worker this morning, and was surprised to see that Microsoft Media Player mis-identified it. Media Player insisted that the CD was an album by The Buggles called "The Age of Plastic." Granted, the CD does contain The Buggles' one and only hit, "Video Killed the Radio Star," but the number of tracks on the two CDs are different, as are the track lengths. I don't know what service Media Player is using to identify these CDs, but seeing this error doesn't give me a warm fuzzy.
