Gracenote Database Update 3373 - MyGig RER
Also saw this update on the message boards...anyone have experience? Gracenote Data base update? Notice a big difference once updated? The below link has more info on software update for RER and links to forum discussion and download/install instrucitons:

I found this info re "Gracenote"

The Gracenotes database identifies music tracks and provides song, artist and genre information for your music stored on your MyGIG hard drive or played from your MyGIG CD/DVD so that you see the actual track information instead of seeing tags like Disk 1 or Track 1. Updating your database will keep you up to date with database information from the latest songs.

The Gracenote updates are locale specific as opposed to radio specific as people in different parts of the world tend to listen to music from different performers so the database of songs is different within different global regions.

Re: Gracenote Database Update 3373 - MyGig RER
I don't really see how this helps if I load an actual CD into the RER and burn it to the MyGig, then it will pull from the database (assuming the artist and album are in there) and display that? What about when you burn an mp3 (data) disc onto the MyGig...those seem to be named exactly as they are saved on the data disc. That sound right?

Re: Gracenote Database Update 3373 - MyGig RER
yep, for a regular cd you need the gracenotes database. for an mp3 it will use the exact info on the disc. gracenotes is very out of date when it is released so newer cds will have unknown information.

Re: Gracenote Database Update 3373 - MyGig RER
one trick i have learned is to make sure you put your mp3s into folders that are the artists name. also make sure all of the contributing artist fields are filled in or else the mygig will put it into an unknown artist folder
