    I have a new iPod Touch and am accessing iTunes8. OK, there's the background.

    A friend in Eastern Europe sent me a number of songs in MP3 format which are unavailable here in the US. They play fine through Windows Media Player and I've burned them to CD to play in the car with no problems. I've renamed them in a folder on my PC with the format <artist name> - <song title> .mp3 and everything's fine, right?

    An example would be "Boris Badenoff - We Must Get Moose and Squirrel.mp3"

    When I try to add them to my Library so I can use them on my iPod, all hell breaks loose. I get weird characters in the fields, or stuff like "Track 10" in the name field and/or blanks in the artist field.

    I just want them to transfer and keep the title the same as on my PC, like I've described the naming convention above.

    What's the trick?
