Can i play CDG on my PC?

Hey everybody, newbie here.

Is there any software that will allow me to play CDG (Karaoke) discs on my PC?

I am running XP Pro on a P3 with a Liteon SOHW-812s with the latest firmware.

I can copy CDG ok with Nero6 which work fine in a dedicated player but only get music, no lyrics through the PC.

Any help, gratefully accepted.

Regards,

Neil

Re: Can i play CDG on my PC?

Just tried the demo version of MicroStudio from your link jssilva, when installed it told me my drive is not CDG compatable!
This can't be right as i can copy CDG wit it ok and Nero info ticks the CDG box.
Is there any other software that allows you to play CDG?

Regards,

Neil

Have you tried a Google search? It turns up several good pages, like this one.

I have not yet tried to play a CD+G from a DVD-ROM however I am able to play the files when they are located on my pc's hard drive. I used a plug-in for Windows Media Player.

When I get off of work today (In about 6Hr 30 Min) I'll be happy to send you the link for it.

Re: Can i play CDG on my PC?

No snow here yet. It melted after Thanksgiving

Sorry if I didn't give a more thorough answer yesterday, I was in a hurry then.

First you'll need to determine if your burner(s) and reader(s) can actually read the subcode where the graphics are contained on a CD+G disc.

The site I mentioned would have an answer for you about your drive(s)

You can only Play, and/or Rip the subcode (graphics of CD+G) with a compatable burner/reader.

Once you have done that, there are several ways to Play a CD+G disc or karaoke disc on a computer.
1. You can buy WinCDG, it will actually play a CD+G disc on a compatable drive.
WinCDG is here:
http://69.41.171.107/index.html

2. You can rip the tracks with CDRWin and then play the resulting '.BIN' files with a program called DART Karaoke Studio CDG

3. Once you have your 'BIN' files, ripped using CDRWin, you can convert them into a pair of files called mp3+g using mp3+g toolz. Once you have your pairs of files you can play them, (with graphics displayed), in Winamp with the CDGplugin installed.
The pairs of files must be named exactly the same and have the extensions as in this example:
Our Lady Peace - Is Anybody Home.cdg
Our Lady Peace - Is Anybody Home.mp3

You can get mp3+g toolz free here:
http://www.mp3gtoolz.kicks-ass.net/default.aspx?p=home

CDRWin is a burning proggy that has to be purchased as does
DART Karaoke Studio CDG

If you have questions try the karaokeplayground site in my last post.
Goto the forum and post questions in the forum called "burning and converting"
Hope this helps,
Jon

You will find software to play and to burn CD+Gs here:

http://www.powerkaraoke.com.

Power CD+G Player Pro will work on most drives, LiteOn is one of them.
