I am making CDs to listen to in the car.

I have an info button on my cars cd player that displays the data title, artist etc...

Want to know how to put that data on the cd before I burn it.

Thanks

I think you want to burn your CDs with CD Text enabled. Many CD programs do this by default. Itunes, which I have but don't use very often, offers it but you have to enable it -- it's "off" by default. Then, make sure the tracks are properly tagged with artist, title, etc.

What package are you using to burn CDs?

Hmmm ... well, you may be out of luck. According to Microsoft -- <HERE> -- Windows Media Player doesn't support CD Text. A quick Google search found a plug-in to "Read" CD Text, but I didn't see anything to make it write CD Text.

You might need to find something else to write your road mixes.

Searching CD Text steers me towards terms like, metadata and GraceNote CDDB.

I will continue to ponder this

That's just the tag info...I use Musicmatch to modify mine, but any tag editor will allow to change/edit such.

hamluis,

Thanks for the reply.

I am going to try the Musicmatch.

Looks like a great program.....can't wait to jump into it.


Any other suggestions will also be appreciated.

Again Thanks,

O.K.
Finally got it to work

Open the audio file in audacity
In Audacity Choose Export as MP3
Fill in the ID3 tags with the names you want to display on your player.
Complete the exporting process in Audacity

Put a blank CD in the writer drag and drop the files to the cd burner

Using Windows Media Player choose to burn the CD

Choose the option to burn the cd that can be played in most CD players and computers.

Finish the process and the cd will display the ID3 title info in your car player.
