Question about CD-text

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am new to the software and have heard great things about it.

I am sorry if this question is redundant, as you have probably heard it so many times, so please bear with me.

I have read posts some from years ago 2005-2006 and some recent and I am trying to get a grasp on how/if the software handles CD-text?

When I burn a audio CD or create my own mp3 CD will the tag data be burned? So I won't see "track 01" etc... on playback?

Or will I need to use CUE sheets for this?

Thanks so much for your time to help me out.

ok well maybe I spoke to soon. The mp3 files I chose to experiment burn have now been deleted or moved form the original file location?

In the root folder where it is located in under documents and settings>My music>"album folder". the mp3 files i selected to burn are gone. What happened? I do have checked to "delete image" but thought it would do just that, deleted the image not the actual files.

ok, sorry to be a bother here, I guess.

A little more on CD-text I am trying to get straight...

I have burned a CD as per following the turorials you have provided, selected the tracks, clicked tags for CD-text option, 2 second gap, etc...

when played in winamp it recongizes the CD-text with track info displayed although it looks like it is linking to the cddb database to do so.

When I play it in my car stereo no CD-text is displayed? I know it can handle it as it will give artist name and track title etc for some other CDs I have tried.

So, I am wondering what went wrong, or does it depend as well if my CD burner is able to burn text? I have a

HL-DT-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4482 E107 CD burner right now which is the standard Dell hardware drive.

Just trying to figure out if I am doing something wrong when burning with imgburn or if its my drive, or the actual CD player?

thanks

Please post the log of you burning + verifying the disc in question (or one of them at least) where CD-TEXT was supposed to have been written but doesn't show up.

 

ImgBurn can be used to confirm your drive has written it (and can read it back) if you look at the burnt media in 'Read' mode and click the little 'View Media Information...' button.

thanks for the reply Lightning. Really, big ups to everyone who gives their time to help people and develope this nice software!

Here is the log for one of my recently burned CD made from a CUE of mp3 files. I did check perform a read disc operation like you said in above post and it indeed list the album and performer next to the were it says CD-text.

let me know what you think

thanks

ok, so the CD burned from a CUE file used in above log worked great. It shows CD-text in my car stereo! Unfortunately I guess my problem then turns out to be when I burn an image file created form an original disc, there is no track/title info on the car stereo.

this is an log from when I created an image file from a disc and then burned it. when I use "read" and "view media info" neither the original or the burned CD reports CD text, it just lists some ISRC values for each track. the disc is Cold Play Viva la vida if that helps

 

thanks again
