CDDB When Not Connected

Smart Playlists
If you rip tracks and can't access CDDB at the time, you can make a playlist to keep these tracks in, so whenever you do have internet access you can get the track and CD names.

Create a Smart Playlist:
Genre/Artist/Album name is blank and 
Track name contains "track"

Does this work? Wouldn't you have to have the CD available to check whatever it is that's on it that identifies it?

Personally, I couldn't stand to see unlabelled tracks. How can you tell what they are? Playlists would ignore them.

I buy CDs one or two at a time and it's not such a pain to label them myself if I'm not going to go online.

Yeah, this would drive me nuts. I HATE unlabeled tracks.

I can confirm that if you rip a few CDs while not online you don't need the CD in available when running your CDDB check. The above method would work well to have a singular place with all your unlabeled tracks. A quick keyword search with "Track" in it would so as well. Highlight, get track names and you are done.

Interesting, I've never tried this before. I usually use iEatBrainz to lookup untagged tracks.
