CD Text

Recommended Posts

I really have two questions.

1. What do programs such as Win Media Player and iTunes use to go and get the track names from Gracenotes CDDB or other places?

2. Why don't CD burn programs use the names on the file names that are picked to be burned? For example a file might have the name, "Come Together.wav" which is a track name. So when the Burner is finished the file name on the cd is now, "Track01.cda". javascript:emoticon(':(')

Sad

I thought that the player programs look at the file names to go and search Gracenotes for track names and album and artist info. For the longest time I thought that CD Test was where this info came from.

There are burner programs that burn the CD Text info on the CD but I have not found a player that reads it.

Your internet connection of course ;)

If you ask for technical details, then you could have a look at http://www.freedb.org/modules.php?name= ... es&secid=2

This is how audio CDs work (or rather not work).

There are burner programs that burn the CD Text info on the CD but I have not found a player that reads it.

Probably you should get an MP3 player.
