Apples to oranges comparision. There's multiple CD look-up databases out
there. Having just one would be boring.

If it's showing the wrong info, click "Search" or whatnot. "Find Album
Info" is pretty simple to use. I think you can figure out how to correct
the album info for your usage. If not, technical support could likely walk
you through it. :)
"Why?" --> ? So that it gives you the right info?

It's a peer supported newsgroup. I try to be helpful but am *not* technical
support (although you can contact them if you want that angle). But happily
enough, this is a really simple issue. There's a minor error in the
database, and your use of "Find Album Info" will both correct it for you and
help alert the database that it may be off here. There's ten kazillion
errors in all the CD lookup databases. I use "Find Album Info" to help
correct this data over time (it takes a while to get validated, etc). If
you want to keep the data the way it is, that's fine. But if you want to
update the data to the right data, "Find Album Info" is your friend and what
you should be using.
