All kidding aside, I am what most would consider an intermediate to somewhat advanced computer user. For that reason, I can’t for the life of me, figure out why I can’t accomplish something as elementary as burning music files onto a CD-R, along with CD-TEXT!
I know how to make VCDs and do analougue to digital conversions in audio and video. I know how to use Flash and Dreamweaver. I know how to make java applets from scratch, and so on....you would think making a simple CD, that when played later on a PC, would show the basic information of album name, artist and track name, to be a breeze for me....I've spent two days trying to figure it out and have wasted about 20 CD-Rs! Here are the details;
-My Iomega CD-RW burner does support the writing of CD-TEXT
-I’ve just updated all drivers for my hardware and software.
-I’m using the latest Nero Burning Rom, version 18.104.22.168
-I’ve tried burning two different audio formats in order to create a standard Audio CD (cda format). The first attempt was made using Mp3 files which had extensive ID3v.1 tag information I entered manually before burning. The seconsd attempt was made using the original wav file versions, which were named by me initially. Keep in mind, both times, I added the CD detailed information into the appropriate fields in Nero, and burned the CD in “write at once” mode. I made sure to check the box that said, “Write CD-TEXT to CD”.
-I know ID3 tag support is not available for Wav format. But they can be issued a filename, which I already did.
-I tried about 3 other applications, boasting their extensive ID3 tagging systems, only to find the frustrating Track 1, Track 2, Track 3, displayed upon playing a burnt CD compilation. I tried these applications using Mp3 files.
-I’ve tried everything, I can cry!!!
As you can see, it's seems so simple and basic, yet it's incredibly out of reach! I'm going to go bald soon from tearing out my hair in frustration. I hope someone can give me a step by step, sure solution. Please don't bother if you have a mere suggestion, I really appreciate it, but I need answers please. I know it's possible to write this info onto a CD, so I must be doing something incredibly wrong. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and take care.
