I absolutely ADORE Queen (obviously) and am trying to collect all the digital masters. However I have purchased A Day At The Races (released by Parlophone and made in Holland) and Windows Media Player instantly mistakes it for a Japanese import released by Toshiba? Anybody else had this???

I'm no expert on this, but it apparently finds album info based on common traits. I've had WMP and EAC find album info on *copies* of discs I've made, as long as I didn't add bonus tracks.

So I think it's more to do with number of tracks, track length, etc. And it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the actual edition of the album if the track list is exactly the same.

I'm not sure which cd I have of a day at the races, whether if if it's a japan import, but I do know that sometimes albums in winamp don't come up with matches that I put in there. The first song should be tie your mother down.
Hope that helps.

I don't have A Day At The Races yet (I bought The Game and Freddie's Best Solo Albulm instead). However I have had the problem of having tracks mixed around, on Real Player, Jukebox 8 Basic, Qick Time and Media Player. I thought the problem began when I used my Mp6 on the computer, but it's been happening for ages. How does one fix it dears, it's quite anoying!

Ta,

Heh, I once had a similar problem, the audio ripper once displayed Dylan's The Times They Are A Changin as Jethro Tull's Auqalung!

Another thing. I am at the momement letting the Youtube web site load up the Live Aid performance of we will rock you. I want to know if I can Save Target As the video so that I can play at my delight when I wish. Anyone know how to do this? And if anyone has downloaded the whole Live Aid performance, please let me know. I would really love to view it!

Thanks,

B.R

I have A day at the Races I bought it in Woolworths and it says it's Japanese. It seems to work OK on my computer and MP3. I think one of my Live Killers disk comes from a different country as well but I'm not sure on that.

One might agree that A Day At The Races is sorta...well...screwed up? They all seemed to be buggered up in one way or another...
