Nero & Cover Editor & CDC files

Hi out there,

can anybody describe the structure of a cdc file for Nero’s cover editor, please? Are there programmes that create such files from existing audio cds?
TIA for your replies.

Solution: Use the Feurio CD Manager. The rest should be self-explanatory.

Nero cover designer and Feurio cover editor both uses cdc files for
Cd label making if you want to save the information for use later or import From another application that can create this file.
A cdc file is an ASCII text file, in its basic form it contains information About the Track title, Track performer, Track duration, CD title, CD Performer, and CD duration, take a look at the sample below. A cdc file can also contain links to graphics, and text formatting information.

I have written an Excel vba application that will read a cd-text cd (no cddb supported yet) and outputs A basic cdc file for Nero cover designer. This will be available at http://www.pearsondev.com soon.
