This affects me too. In the meantime I've been using XBMC to rip my CDs

But I must say I agree with the sentiments of some of the earlier
commenters: it's disappointing how long it's taking for the existing
patch to make its way out "to the masses", especially for such a key
feature as the ability of a music application to fetch CD info.

  Banshee is unable to retrieve CDs information from MusicBrainz

Status in Banshee Music Player:
  Fix Released
Status in The Rhythmbox Music Management Application:
Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: banshee

  the MusicBrainz querying policy has changed. now each request MUST
  provide a user-agent, and Banshee doesn't do this, so any requests are
  not honored.

  Conclusion: we are unable to retreive CDs informations.
