I can't get Media Player to recognize the information on CD's I'm trying to burn. I'm guessing that this is because MP won't connect to the internet. I recently installed Norton Internet Security and so I went into my firewall settings and specified that I wanted to allow Media Player to connect to the internet. This did not alleviate the problem, however. Any ideas?

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

So is it fair to say that this problem started after installing Norton?

I can't get Media Player to recognize the information on CD's I'm trying to burn

What does this mean exactly? Are you really trying to 'burn' or are you trying to play something?

Seems like he wants Windows Media Player to recognise name and artist of the songs that he's burning. Media Player tries to do that sometimes, but never works for me nor that i want it to work.

You can use Windows Media Player 10 to burn any mix of songs you want from your library to an audio CD. Once you've burned a CD, you can play it in any standard CD player. Burning mix CDs makes it easy to listen to only the songs you want. Before you begin, you need the following:

i have the same problem with media play 10 not adding the songs and artist info from the net. I find the CD with the info but it won't automatically add it in i always have to do it manually which is a pain and is alright for custom cd's but not for a album.

Sorry AF, I didn't notice that second question. I'm actually just trying to rip the songs to my library.

It would seem to me that if the problem started after the installalation of Norton (whatever Norton aps apply), then settings within those program/s are blocking whatever it is in Media Player from being able to provide the information you want.

Look at the settings for whatever Norton aps you installed and enable Media player's needs.

or

Uninstall the Norton components you installed.

Now I get it! So, as you rip songs from a cd and into your computer, Windows Media Player used to pull related info off of the internet, such as artist info, album cover art, etc. And now, since installing Norton, it will allow you to rip, but it will not contact the internet and get the related info anymore.

I think Enthusiast may be on to it. Depending on what Norton product you have installed it may simply be a settings change that will cure your ills. Perhaps more info can be found on the Norton support pages at their site, as this doesn't really sound like an XP problem. Good luck!
