Most programs use CDDB which is a cd database on the net.

Thats how they read what songs are on a CD.

Sometimes it takes a few minutes for the names of the songs to appear. As Speedy says they have to be downloaded from the internet database.

If you are using WMP 11 in XP, you may need to right-click on an empty area in the top bar (by the forward/back buttons is good) to bring up the "classic" menu, left-click "tools", then "options", then the "library" tab in the options window and make sure "Retrieve Additional Information From The Internet" box is ticked, left-click "Apply" then "Ok".
Also make sure you're online when you rip or play the cd.
I dont think it will add the data once you have saved the files tho!

If I understand your last comment correctly, I think Windows Media Player wont rip music onto DVDs, you'll need Nero or something similar for that.
