Utilized the batch ripper in various configurations for the 400 disc trial and could not find the combination of settings which allows Windows Media Player to understand key meta data.

The two I am most interested in is - Year, Track Length.

I did find that: CD Ripper>>Options>>Meta Data & ID Tags>>Options>>"Force no date on Year" was an option but it did not seem to affect the results in CD Ripper or Batch Ripper.

Thanks in advance for the help prior to jumping into the next 2000 CD's
