Problems With Cd Titles


acourpet

Question

Using Toast 7.02. I'm not getting the titles to copy over to the cd's I burn. I've only burned a few cd's and at at first I didn't know I had to check the CD-text box, but I do have that box checked and no text. Here's my work flow. I had a aiff song "xxx" on my desktop. Opened Toast cilck on theaudio tab, click the cd tex box, draged the "xxx" song into the Toast workspace. It shows the song in the title as "xxx". I hit the burn button and it shows writing "xxx".When I open the burned disk it just shows Track 1 no title (xxx), I placed it in Itunes and it also shows just Track 1, no title (XXX). How do I get the titles to transfewr over to my cd.

 

Another problem I'm having which is really wierd. If I go to media in toast and select a song from Itunes, it's name transfers over to Toast okay, then after it finishes burning the cd's title and song is completely differnt, ( at least I get a title on the cd even though the wrong one!). I've never had such difficulties with a program before. Hopefully someone can straighten me out.

 

Thanks

This is all working correctly. The only way to get audio CD album, artist and track names to appear on the Mac is to enter that information in iTunes or - if it is a copy of a commercial CD - to download that info from the online CDDB database.

 

CD Text is only readable by certain home and car CD players. The Mac OS does not read CD Text. Instead, the OS looks at the number of tracks and track length of a CD and looks for a match in a database file in your preferences folder. If it finds a match it displays the info. If it doesn't find a match it displays the generic names or searches CDDB for a match (which I'm guessing where the odd track names came from).

 

There is an Applescript called CD Text to CD Info available here: http://www.dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/scripts09.php

It can make it easy to transfer the CD Text info from the CD to iTunes so that iTunes will update its CD info database file.
