Audio CDs recognition

#1

I currently have the Bose lifestyle 48 which has a media center with a built-in storage device that stores audio CD songs only (not MP3s). It uses the pre-installed Gracenote database to identify the songs and catalog them by artist, album and genre.

Unfortunately this only works well if the CDs are original audio CDs with the information already present in the Gracenote database.

When I try to burn my own collection of songs on a audio CD, the album and tracks appear as “no label” when I store it in the media center.

Is there any way to write these audio CDs so that the media center can directly pull out the track and album information from the CD itself. I have tried various programs and even burned the audio CDs using apple and windows. The end result is still the same.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Start ripping originals with say EAC or dBpoweramp, and use a lossless format(e.g. flac…Burn the flacs to standard Audio CD…You could also include CD-text when burning and your player may(or not) recognize/read the info…Give burrrn a spin…

I believe that burning with CD-Text is your only hope.

Original Audio CD’s ripped and burned with EAC are identified in the data bases as “the original” CD with or without CD-Text,

though appending CD-Text information doesn’t hurt , most audio equipment doesn’t recognize it.

Just make sure that the settings don’t append any additional gaps when burning.
