WMP wont find album info

I just tried to find album info for a Gerry Rafferty album but WMP doesnt oblige. The icon in the top left corner of the box just keeps spinning and nothing happens.

itunes will probably find it.....(!) but if I download itunes will it aotumatically try to import all my music into the library? The last time I downloaded itunes it did, but for some reason I seem to remember it creating 2 copies of everything and an unholy mess ensued before I uninstalled it!

Whats the best music player currently?

yes i found that with itunes. it tries to take over your computer. it will copy everything and convert it into it's own AAC format. fine if you buy online & have an ipod etc, but i don't...
i think WMP is a good-looking media player. have you tried right-clicking on the album art symbol? it should bring up an option to find album info. then it should give you a list of options for different albums.
also you could try entering the album info manually i.e song titles etc then do find/update album info again.
