Audio Cds Disc Name And Tracks Not Written



1 answer to this question

Recommended Posts

CD Text is not read by computers. It is read by special CD Text-enabled standalone players such as some premium car CD players. To have the track names appear on the Mac they need to be stored in the cdinfo database file that's in your User Library. Apple doesn't allow Toast to write to that file. Go to iTunes and manually enter the artist/album/track info. After that it will always appear on your Mac when the CD is inserted.


If you have many of these to do there is a CD Text to cdinfo applescript from dougscripts.com that automatically copies that information when you run the applescript from the Scripts menu in iTunes.


The reason your commercial audio CDs show track information is it gets downloaded to the cdinfo file from Gracenote's online compact disc database the first time the audio CD is inserted in your Mac.


By the way, Toast reads the CD Text if you insert the burned disc and add it to the Toast Audio or Convert windows.
