Is there any way to update the Gracenote database on Comand?? Its a real pain not to have any of my new albums recognised. I know this is a pretty trivial issue but it does bug me a bit. Thanks for any advice.

I don't think COMAND is using the Gracenote database system actually, i thought it read the information directly off the CDs that have it(which it very rarely actually has). I may be wrong on this though.
I agree with you. It reads gracenote data but does not communicate with the internet/database. i also could be wrong! lol!
Gracenote, Inc. formerly called CDDB (Compact Disc Data Base) is a company that maintains and licenses an Internet-accessible database containing information about the contents of audio compact discs. It provides software and metadata to businesses that enable their customers to manage and search digital media. Gracenote provides its media management technology and global media database of digital entertainment information to the mobile, automobile, portable, home, and PC markets. Several computer software applications that are capable of playing CDs, such as Winamp and iTunes, use Gracenote’s CDDB technology. Gracenote’s database was originally created from and continues to receive voluntary contributions from users.
In addition to its CD track-identification system, Gracenote operates a digital file identification service which allows digital music files (such as MP3s) to be identified, and a media management service for the generation of playlists, and recommendation of music.
Command simply reads "CD text" from CDs that have it - not many do, although if you burn your own with ITunes or another program you can include the CD text so that Command will show the album and track names. Hope this helps!
HI, Not sure where you are reading your music from (ipod/ mp3) or the 'pedigree' of your music catalog... but if you havent found this yet... it is well worth it. This is a plug in for itunes that 'repairs' tag data/ album art. and it is reasonably priced.
