Unhappy Ripping tracks from DVD

Had the Zen about a year and so far have installed most of the music by burning albums from MP3 dvd's onto rewritable CD's and then ripping the CD onto the Zen, so far no problem. The reason I do this is that Gracenote will only recognise CDs and fill in the track names etc. Now I want to rip directly from the DVD but when I do this the tracks load on without names only 'Track 1' etc. Anyone got any idea how to accomplish this and also where do I manually input the track titles if I want to go that route?

You can use an application like WMP, MediaMonkey, MP3Tag, MP3 Tag Tools and others to embed the information about artists, track names and numbers, genres and other into the MP3 files you have on DVD. Some of them will do Internet lookups to help you avoid having to type all the information.

The problem is that you won't be able to do that to the files already on your DVD's, unless the discs are rewritable and you copy the tracks from them to the PC and back after they're tagged. But in my opinion, it's better than burning and ripping CD's, since the resulting MP3 files surely have worse sound quality.
