Included with Windows 7, Windows Media Player 12 allows you to rip CDs, burn CDs, sync music to your portable devices, convert tracks and to import and edit your track names. As with earlier versions of Windows Media Player, you may use the built-in Internet music database connection to import details about your audio tracks, including album, artist and track names. If you've already ripped your CD, you may edit the track information after connecting to the Internet.
