Question

I have to enable CD-Text on an audio CD I'm burning in Jam 6.1.1. There doesn't seem to be anything in the manual or online to answer my questions.

 

I. The information fields I have in Jam are:

 

1) Disk

A) Title

B) Artist

 

2) Track

A) Title

B) Artist

 

3) Mastering Info.

A) Date

B) Title

C) Artist

D) Producer

E) Copyright

F) Comment

 

The manual DOES say that #3 "Mastering Info is not printed to CD, but only shows up in the Jam window.

 

I take it that #1 and #2 DO get printed as metadata to the CD.

 

Questions:

 

Is there a number(or type)-of-character limit for each field?

 

Does each CD have to be entered into an online database to show up on computers (Mac or PC) or will both OS's recognize the CD-Text on the CD?

 

Thanks for any help (or warnings of problems)!

 

Robert

I don't know about any character limits. There is a limit to the total amount of CD Text data as described here.

 

Mac and PC OS do not read CD Text so you'd need to upload track info to CDDB.

Excellent post tsantee. The limit for each field is 255. However, if you used that much you would reach the total limit very quickly.
