Track Tags To Cd


Don99

Question

I would like to be able to burn audio discs (from mp-3 files on my hard drive) and have the tag information be burned on to the CD. I've tried a number of different approaches without success. I downloaded a trial version of EMC 9 to see if that would allow me to write track tag data. Did not work. Should I be able to do it? I have gotten a lot of conflicting info. In another forum it was mentioned that to accomplish what I want to do, I need a burner that has "write text" capability (which very few burners today have). True? I would think if there is such a limitation, it could be overcome by software. Thanks for your time.

What are yo using to 'prove' the CD TEXT is there? Windows Media Player does NOT read CD text! You will need a software player that reads it if you are trying to do this on a computer.

If you burn mp3's to an audio cd then you won't get the tags.

 

ID tags are a part of an mp3 file,separate from the music.An Audio cd does not use ID tags.

If you burn them to an Audio cd you will never have the tag info.

You might have cd-text but not the original mp3 tag info.

Thanks for the responses. All three were useful to me. I was testing the presence of track info in WMP. Took it out to the car and the track info was there. I have struggled with this a long time and am glad to finally be making some progress. A couple more questions please:

1. Is there a player that can be installed on a computer that will show track info if present?

2. I tested other previously burned cd's on my car cd player and track info was not present. Is this capability unique to Roxio? I am now sorry I invested in Nero but should it be able to write the track data to CD?

3. For this track writing capability, do I need the full blown creator 2009 or will the Record Now 10 (not premier) work OK.

4. Anyone in the market for a slightly used Nero CD? (Joke)

 

Thanks again!!

HACP stands for Hacp Audio Cd Player. It's a simple but handy CD player with support for freedb (the alternative for CDDB), CD TEXT, multiple CDROM drives. The program has 2 different interfaces: a normal view and a very basic tiny view.

Hi Don,

 

My Nero 6 does. I don't think they've dropped it in later versions.

I'm afraid I can't help you with Record Now 10, as I don't have a copy of that. The Roxio-sourced record modules do, but RN10 is a Sonic one and I'm not so familiar with them.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Don,

 

You can go here and download a plugin for Windows Media Player that lets it show the CD-Text.WMP doesn't have the capability built in.

 

If you make sure that you check the Add CD-Text box in the Project settings you should get at least some info when you use mp3 files.
