[QUOTE=mciahel;2559184]Commercially manufactured CDs with CD Text are rare. So I guess, most CD information shown in player software like Winamp is retrieved from external databases like CDDB or FreeDB or similar. This information should be editable locally.
I disagree (I still buy CDs) and most of my CDs do have CD Text…even ones you wouldn’t think would (e.g. CDS-200). Maybe years ago CD Text wasn’t used much but today since many players support it they do…at least the ones made in Japan and US (that may vary from country to country).
Also some burning apps like iTunes always write CD Text if you want it to or not and since most writers support it today it gets written. But you’re right he may not be talking about CD Text since it’s a burned disc, that varies on what app he burned it with.
