Windows 7: Windows Media Player

Windows Media Player

Is it possible to disable WMP accessing song data? I have an album which it doesn't recognise, and when I first put it in the 'Music' library, it placed some songs in a randomly spawned album.
Windows Media Player is very annoying when it comes to album information. I wish I could just update album info myself.
