Is the problem when playing the cd or when ripping the cd as I can't see where the two buttons you mentioned are.

I upgraded to WMP 11 today and ripped a few cd's to my mp3 player (in wma format) and everything seemed ok with mine except for click here

Cheers, Chris.

I installed WMP11 when it was in beta and dumped it after a few hours for the same reasons as Frankie, I just couldn't find out how to locate album info at all with it.

This worked to enable net access for WMP10, don't know if it will for 11 but worth a look.
Start menu/run, type

regedit

press return.

Locate
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer

If the following keys exist and are set at 1, change the value to 0.

PreventCDDVDMetadataRetrieval

PreventMusicFileMetadataRetrieval

Reboot, try again.
