Disc Title And Track Name Changes Upon Burn

Question

I'm using Toast 8.0.4 to burn an audio CD. I have one long .wav file--almost an hour. I drag it into Toast, with audio CD selected. I give the CD a title. Burn the CD. Burns fine. But there's a completely different track name and disc name--nothing like what I chose. I go back to Toast--the track name and disc title are the way I entered them. I try a new disc--burns fine, but again I'm getting a mystery track name and disc title--not words I entered.

 

If anyone has any advice I'd appreciate hearing it. I did a search but could not find the solution to this.

This is an example of how the Mac does not read CD Text burned to an audio CD. Instead the Mac reads a CD Info database file on the hard drive when an audio CD with a matching number of tracks and track lengths is inserted. The name in that CD Info database file was downloaded by iTunes from the online CDDB. You should be able to change the name to the one you want by editing the name in iTunes.

Thanks for the reply! Yes, I was just reading the manual and saw the part about Mac OS not recognizing CD text, and the part about using "disc info" to see the CD text. It really stumped me though, that I was getting a mystery track name and disc title--I forgot about the CDDB database--I guess iTunes automatically tries to ID audio CDs.
