Wanting cd text as [title]-[artist]


robincary

Question

I've got "Easy Media Creator 7 - Basic VCD Edition".

 

I'm "ripping" songs from my audio cd's, and then creating

new greatest-hits audio cd's. Two of my cd players support

cd-text (the pioneer cd changer in my truck and the pioneer

cd player in my DJ equipment), so I like using cd text. But

their text window is very small, so I want the title of the song

first, and then the artist second (that way I can right-scroll to

see the artist if I want, but I'll mainly see the song title when

playing the cd's).

 

When I'm ripping the songs off of my original audio cd's,

and if I use Roxio's "Enable audio disc information download",

it lets me use the "File Naming Structure" of

[artist]-[title], or just [title], but not [title]-[artist].

 

Therefore when I ripped a few dozen songs, I let it name the

files with just [title], and then I manually re-named the .wav

files and added the "- artist" to the filenames.

 

But when I create the audio cd's, it ignores my filename,

and reverts back to just the [title]. So I guess I'll have to

once again manually type in the info (which sucks worse than

not using info-download from the internet at all ... because now

I'll have to re-type it each time I use that song on another cd??)

 

It would be *real* convenient to have Roxio automatically

do the naming for me, but since it doesn't give me the automatic

option for [title]-[artist], it seems worse than not using it at all.

 

Any suggestions???

 

-----

 

Back with Easy CD Creator 6 (when I didn't have an internet connection),

I always manually named my songs [title]-[artist], and then when I

created audio cd's it used that filename as the cd-text.

 

You would think that with the newer (v7), and connected to the internet

that life would be better/easier... This is very frustrating...

Are you ripping your tracks to .WAV files or to .MP3 files? If you're ripping to .MP3 files, then I'm guessing that EMC 7 is filling in the Tag data in the .MP3 file, and it is using that when for the CD-Text info instead of the file name.

 

Let us know what file type you're using.
