What OS, which software are you using to transfer?

Track details are stored in the MP3's "tag". If you're transferring the tracks manually, you need an tag editor to input the details. Here's a free one that I use. It's basic, but it does the job.

If use use Media Player to rip the CD's, it usually does the tag editing for you.

QuizMan and Ionbarber - many media players can download the artist and track title as they are ripped so you don't haver to manually type each one. Check the settings of your media software to make sure this is enabled. Sometimes called CDDB.
