Tagging tracks with artist name? Answered

I'm struggling to assign the artists name to a file and I was wondering if anyone knew a fast and easy solution? I'm basically ripping cds to my computer and I can get the artist name up in itunes but not in the file ripped to my computer, is there a way to do so without individually renaming each file.

I also want to include information like cover art, although this isn't essential.

Any help much appreciated, THANKS!

Is iTunes set to make a copy into it's own folder? iTunes should be saving the meta data into the audio file, it just may not be the original one from the ripping.

Are you ripping with iTunes or something else? What OS are you using? In Win 7 you can just select music files and change the meta data at the bottom of the folder.
