File or track properties


Recommended Posts

Just starting to use this for our Church . . . taking the Worship service as a recorded mp3 with the information entered as tag information. When recorded to the cd, all that information disappears and the files become tracks with the name track01.cda etc. replacing the names given before the recording. Can we burn several files to one cd, with each file becoming it's own track on that cd, and each file retaining it's description?

Hello,

 

The answer is "it depends".

It depends on what you want to "play" the CDs on. The type of CD you make depends on where you expect your congregation to play it.

 

(1) Your average music-type CD player will only play audio CDs, and will not display a description anyway. (2) A computer CD drive can use both audio or data CDs, but it depends on the program you're using to play them just what description it will display. .

 

In CD Creator you can choose to make an AUDIO CD, or a DATA one. CD Creator will make both types, but they are very different in structure and behave quite differently.

 

If you write your MP3 file onto a DATA disc it will retain the information the description it has in its MP3 tag. You can also put other MP3s on the CD until it is full (700 MB usually). However this is a data disc, and can only be used in a computer unless you have a new player which handles MP3s. It won't play in most older music CD players.

 

If you open an audio project and drag the MP3 into your Creator window, Creator will turn it into an audio track and record that. This will play in most CD players so you don't need a computer to play it. You can add tracks until you reach 80 minutes, which fills the CD. (You can get 74 minute CDs, but they're rare now). Information from the MP3 tag is lost during conversion back to audio. It is possible to write "CD Text" into an audio CD, but very few players or playing programs will display that.

 

I hope this helps. The answer is condensed, so if you need any aspects expanded please feel free to come back here and ask.
