The name as displayed in the Toast window comes from the ID3 tag, if present inside the MP3 file.

how can i change this"ID3" name?

 

 

It doesn't matter much, as CD-DA doesn't store track names.

i have several hundred CDs with track names and text info that displays when they are played on my sony player.

CD very much does store the track names.

 

You can change the track's ID with iTunes. You also can add tracks to Toast from iTunes by using the Toast Media Browser.

are you saying that the only way that toast 10 will recognize a name change is if it is done in itunes?

why is that? i have many music files that have nothing to do with itunes.

i have to launch itunes, move a file in there and out again just to change a name?

An mp3's file name on the hard drive is not always the same as its track name. They can be different. When you drag the mp3 into Toast, Toast reads the ID3 tag to display to track name rather than the file name. If you want to change the track name you need to do it with an application that edits the ID3 tag (such as iTunes) or edit it in Toast.

 

If you are creating an MP3 disc rather than an audio CD then Toast uses the file name instead because an MP3 disc is just a data disc in ISO 9660 format.

ok, i was able to edit the ID3 in itunes. thank you.

seems like a lot of work to do something that takes one click in windows.
