When I rip a Cd to my computer as an Mp3 it shows up as uknown on my mp3 player and on windows. Ive tried ripping with three apps and none of them work.

Was your computer connected to the Internet at the time? IIRC, it has to be able to access an online database in order to get the names and other information for the CD tracks.

It is. Its strange because when loading the songs into a library on any linux music prgram it gives all the correct info but when loading it in windows or an mp3 player it doesnt. But Visa Versa it works. For instance ripping a cd on windows and loading it in ubuntu works fine.

Look for an option in those programs that says something like "Write metadata to file"... look in the preferences.
