I have a similar-sounding problem. MP11, running on XP, has messed up the
track listing on my double CD: Muddy Waters: "Got My Mojo Working". The first
time I played the disks, MP11 got the track lists from MS's web-site but the
track listing for CD2 came out the same as that for CD1 (which it shouldn't
be) After ripping both CDs, each to its own folder, MP11 combined the two
lists into one, so that the track list consisted of the first track name from
CD1, twice, then the second track name from CD1, twice, etc. When I play
this, the music alternates between that on CD1 and CD2.
I think MP11 has bugs!
I'm now trying to edit the list, which is possible, but it's a pain. I can
only suggest you try the same. Or you could wait for MS to find the bugs &
cure them. Good Luck, Dry.
