Mixed CDs: Do tracks retain artist/title info?

Hi again!

The old noob here with a question about mixing tracks on a compilation CD.

I’ve got two CDs by the Mexican singer Vicente Fernandez.

When I play either CD in my laptop WinAmp displays the artist/song title/timing for each track.

If I were to mix together some tracks as CDA files from these two albums onto a single CD-R, would the individual track info for the different tracks still appear in WinAmp when I play the mixed CD-R?

I don’t believe so. Players such as WinAmp typically use the disc ID information to pull the disc information for an online database.

You could burn it with ‘CD Text’ enabled and a lot of players will pick up on it and display Artist and Title.
