It sounds like there's another place the method is stripping off all
but the first three words of the cd name.  Yes, replace
		$need = join(" ", (split)[0 .. 2]);
		$need = $_ ;

And that should get rid of the problem.  I haven't tested this, but it
looks like that's where it stripped the volume name down.
