When the CD isn't in library then it stores just the basic metadata like title/album/artist/genre into the CDPlayer.ini file.

Workaround is (as Peke suggested) to add the files into the library before ripping (to keep all the metadata).

EDIT: Note that in MM4 also the custom fields were preserved when the tracks were edited immediately before ripping (because the same memory instances of the tracks were used for ripping).
We should fix this in MM5 (at least to to the same level as in MM4).

Edited properties prior to RIP now works as in MM4.

My workaround always worked like that eg. I always suggest users to firstly add 10+ CDs into Library and While ripping one he can edit/correct metadata fro others. it saves time considerably especially on larger ripping operations.
