Track names not showing up after buring CD


TJ65

Question

I am converting a bunch of vinyl albums to CD and have them saved as mp3's on my hard drive. I am using Roxio Media Creator 9 Suite to burn the mps's onto CD's. When looking at the songs in the playlist they have all of the track names and length yet when copied to a CD they show up as 'unknown artist'. I have CD Text selected when burning. I just looked at the CD that was created and see the files are saved as a type of .cda (CD Audio). Any suggestions on how I can get the track names to show up when the CD is being played? I would like to put them all in Media Player and be able to sort by the Artist and track name but this is impossible with everything showing up now as 'unknown'.

First, there are several applications that you can use to make an audio CD. Which one of the applications are you using ? Use Music Disc Creator to make your discs.

 

BTW, if you have the space, rip as wav files. mp3 files are compressed so some of the "audio" is missing. Uncomressing it to a wav file will not bring back the missing audio.

 

All audio discs have the .cda extension and are of the same size. That's the way it is; you have to use a player or application that will read the track infomation and associate it with the cds file.

 

Do you have the plug in for WMP that reads CD text. Perhaps this will help.

I am using Music Disc Creator to make the CD's. I use a product called Spin It Again to copy the album to my PC. I was under the impression that in order to see the track names it had to be an MP3. I haven't downloaded any plug ins for WMP, perhaps the CD text one will help.

That's just to see if the text is written correctly. If it is, then there is a different problem. What happens if you use Music Disc Creator to burn with CD text enabled?

 

Why are you using two products when one will do (capture, moderate cleaning and burn) - Roxio ? Are your records/tapes in that bad a shape?

The plug in works great for the WMP. I ended up getting Spin it Again based on user reviews when looking for something that had lots of options for recording LPs. I am very happy with the product. It also has the capability to burn the CD so sometimes I don't use Roxio at all. Just personal preference I guess.

CD text is enabled when I burn using Music Disc Creator. That is the only way the plugin for WMP lets you see the track names.
