Tracks Description

Recommended Posts

Recently I bought Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum.

 

Upgraded to Version 5.3.5.10

 

I copied tracks that I have got from P2P and others ,seems to work fine except when I use the CD Labeling it does not seem to recognise the tracks.

 

Also when I try to take the tracks from the finalised CD,error message comes up

 

"CD label creator could not find a CD to read"

 

Any thoughts would be appriciated

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

I hope you didn't pay much for it, because ECDC5 is old and not supported any more.

 

A) Labelling - if you make your own compilation of tracks on an audio CD, it will NOT be recognized by any of the on-line databases. They store mainly commercial CDs, and the database compares the characteristics of your CD (number and duration of tracks and what order they're in) to see if it can be matched. Your CD won't be already in the database to be matched.

 

:) Label Creator should be able to locate and read your CD, even if it is not in the databases. The on-line HELP system says:

To get the contents of an existing CD:

 

1. Insert the existing CD into your CD-ROM or CD-R drive. If you have more than one drive containing a CD, CD Label Creator prompts you to select the drive containing the CD you want to use.

 

2. From the Add menu, select CD Contents.

. . . so if the CD is an AUDIO CD and is readable you should be able to have it in any optical drive attached to your machine and Label Creator should see it once the disc has had time to spin up. I can't understand why Label Creator can't find a CD to read, unless you have a virtual drive created on your machine which is confusing it.

If the tracks are .mp3, and instead of an AUDIO CD you have made either an .mp3 CD or a Data disc with .mp3's, Label Creator won't find it.

 

Or, you can open Label Creator and do-it-yourself.

 

Or you can always make a plain-text list in NotePad like my friend in Germany does. :)

 

Both, however, assume you will type the info in yourself.

Um,

 

That ain't necessarily so. In Label Creator 5 you should get tracks named for your MP3 files,

voila . . .

Label Creator should find even an MP3 data disc. I'm concerned as to why it didn't.

 

FGH7BX, how did you make the disc that label creator couldn't find?

Which program did you use to burn it, and was it a CD-Audio disc, an MP3 data disc, or one you formatted first and then dropped things onto???
