When I just insert a CD I can see certain metadata. When I then click on "reloads metadata of the current disc", I see some changes. I guess when clicking the reload button, information is gathered from the different sources (discogs, gd3, ...), but what is exactly analyzed the very first time, right after inserting the disc? Which metadata (based on what) are shown by default? Must be something different than the perfect metadata shown after clicking "reload".

2. When I click on "retrieve metadata from CD TEXT", I don't see the artists (they get shown as "various artists" on a compilation CD, yet I know this information is there, as another ripping program gives me the correct Track Artists when I click CD TEXT on that program. What could be wrong here?
