Cd-Text Not Getting Written To Audio Cd

Question

Cannot get Toast 11 to write CD-Text when creating Audio CD. Followed the instructions, make sure CD-Text was ticked but no text gets written. If I create CD from iTunes for the same audio files, the text is written properly. Using a Plextor drive that supports CD-Text for both Toast and iTunes. Any ideas?

Writing cd-text appears to be working well for me. Mind you that not all CD Players support reading cd-text. If you created a CD in Toast which displays the CD track names and CD-Text was checked, you can confirm the cd-text by doing the following steps.

-Mount the CD created in Toast

-Launch your "Terminal" from the "Applications/Utilities folder

-Type the following string including the space: drutil cdtext

-Click the return key

If in fact the CD contains no cd-text, it will be indicated in the return string, otherwise you will see an expanded list of information in which you will see the CD track names.

Thanks BJacks. My Plextor drive does support Cd-Text. If I run drutil, the CD I created from itunes and the CD I created from Toast both show data in cd-text. However, if I load both CDs, only the one created in iTunes shows text, while the one created using Toast shows "audio cd" and "track 01" as the text fields. So is this more of an iTunes thing? Seems odd to me.

thanks

just to clarify, after creating the 2 audio CDs, I bring up itunes and it only recognizes the text from the itunes-created cd

The Mac OS does not read CD Text. Therefore, iTunes does not recognize it. What you can do is go to dougscripts.com and download the "CD Text to cdinfo" applescript. When installed it appears int he scripts menu of iTunes. Running it transfers the CD Text information from the disc to the cdinfo database file on your Mac, which is easier than manually entering the info into iTunes.
