- In this movie, I want to show you how to…manually enter track information…in case either iTunes is unable…to identify a particular CD…or you don't have an active internet connection…at the time you import the CD tracks.…I'm going to go to iTunes Preferences…or Edit Preferences on Windows,…and under general, I'm going to uncheck…Automatically Retrieve CD Track Names from Internet.…Now, you don't have to do this unless…you just want to follow along with your own CD…and enter some information manually here.…But as I mentioned in the previous movie,…most of the time iTunes will be able to…correctly identify your CDs…so you won't have to type stuff in manually yourself.…
But for this example I'll leave it unchecked…and click OK.…And I'll insert another audio CD into my computer.…So you can see it shows up with the generic name of Audio CD…and the tracks are just listed as…Track 1, Track 2, Track 3 and so on…along with their time durations.…No other information is available from the CD itself.…Now, there's nothing saying I can't import the CD right now.…
