Could anyone explain me WTF is this?

So, my girlfriend has a copy of HTDAAB and everytime she copies it to the pc most of the song names that show up are a little bit different from what you and I would expect, take a look:



Seriously, has this happened to anyone else here?
It's kinda weird... I think someone messed up when pressing the cds. But those names are really... random. So, I would like to know if this is an isolated event.
Thanks for those who answer it.

Seriously? I'm not into Depeche, but I thought that Sinner In Me name was kinda familiar. Is that really right?

So, why the hell this happens? When she plays the songs it's all U2.

EDIT: Just looked it up on wiki, those are all names from Depeche's Playing the Angel... I guess someone screwed things up when pressing the cds. Sorry to bother, problem solved. Thanks Niceman.

No problem. Does this happen on more than one computer? You can always re-name them manually....

I read once that when ripping cds, the media player you're using (in my case, it was just WMP) will use certain criteria to search for the song and album info - I think one was song length, but I can't remember the rest - and that sometimes the wrong info can be applied to songs. Maybe that has something to do with it?

Same thing happens to me all the time. One of my RHCP's cd's has all Michael Jackson song names, and some others have names of songs I haven't got a clue what they are. I've also got Guns n Roses songs names for one of my cd's too
