I've had this happen a couple of other times. Once, 4 unrelated tracks on a 
CD-RW which the system "recognized" as something else (didn't give me a 
problem) and another time when it actually did identify the album, even though 
I'd transferred it from an lp. That was weird.

I did two CDs worth of Jascha Heifetz recordings for Naxos a couple of years 
ago, comprising all the Deccas and the V-Discs. All transferred from original 
lps and 78s. The discs display in my car's player as "The Decca Years", even 
though there is no such title or reference on the Naxos discs. Smart? Sheesh.
