Need help - Id tags never show up on burned cd

Post by ynotbuyit »

When I burn a CD the Tracks only list as "Unknown" artists and a track #. I never see the ID tags that are in the original MM track.

Are you burning an audio CD or a MP3 CD?

What program are using when tracks show no data?

What program did you use to burn the CD?

Please include as much detailed information as possible so we can figure out the problem.

As you replied in a PM you are writing an audio CD. The tracks of an audio CD don't contain any information. I believe there is a way to write the info the CD, but I don't know how myself.

You might want to read the help of your burning software to see how to burn track information. Maybe someone else here knows?

Hello,

you are talking about the cd writer function CD TEXT.

1) Not all cd writer support this

2) I am not sure if the super mega bruner software Nero even supports to write CD TEXT for each title. I know it will support CD TEXT for the CD, but not sure if also each song has it's CD TEXT data.

As Musicfreak wrote, it depends on CD-Text support. MM can both read and write CD-Text from Audio CDs and so the only other necessity is that your CD burner supports this feature. In case it does, all should work fine, if it doesn't then there isn't a way how to store metadata to Audio CDs.

There is some workaround when CD Burner can write in RAW Mode, but not many support Disk At Once/96 Raw Mode :(
