My disc doesn't have any fangs. Nor does the song list have the songs' lengths, so I don't know how to tell if the songs are the right ones. I can tell you, however, that my disc has 11 songs just as it's supposed to. Oh, and that it looks like this:

I don't know, closing the CD case carelessly can give your fingers a nasty nip.

I'm sorry; I'm still having trouble understanding why you think that your disc--which looks like everyone else's--has different music on it.

That the music doesn't sound like Indiana Jones doesn't mean anything. The artist, according to my booklet, only tried to "capture the spirit of classic pulp adventure." Honestly, if the CD is full of 1-4 min tracks of rather flat-sounding midi/synthesizer music, you probably have the right one. Imo, it isn't nearly as good or as thematic as the AToE CD, a later effort.

iTunes probably pulled the wrong song titles as it just matches up song lengths to find the database listing... it's sometimes wrong especially on lesser known CDs. There may be a command to re-look it up in one of the menus.

Here's the first few songs lengths for verification: 1:33, 2:36, 3:49, 2:06... you may just have to type in the song names if they won't come up right.

Most players use data from large music info providers, if the data for the CD is not in the database then it may well try and guess. track data can be stored on the CD too but not all CDs have that data on the disc so you may just get track 1, track 2 etc.

A media player (any media player) that shows track titles is going to be loading info from an online database, picking an CD in that database that best matches the game CD. The match will not be correct since the game CD won't be in whatever database the media player is using. Therefore, the track and album title that the media player shows you will not match your CD.

Yes, it makes sense that the last song on the CD would feature the sound of an airplane engine. Note that the title of that song (as shown on the liner sheet, not the incorrect information shown by your media player) is Jake Zane, Flying Ace.

Edit: If you really want your media player to show the correct information, most will let you hard code the album and track titles.

Sorry. Let me rephrase:

If you really want your media player to show the correct information, most will let you type in the
album and track titles so that those will show instead of whatever it finds when it tries to look them up
on its own.


I can't tell you off the top of my head how to do that with whatever program you are using (or even tell you whether it will let you). That, you will probably have to research for yourself. Your alternatives are to either ignore the titles the player displays or manually match the track # with the corresponding entry on the liner notes.

Just to confirm I have the same exact "problem" of the Mendoza line - the fault is definitely in how your music reader is picking up the music titles. The CD itself is fine.
