    Not all CD's have the same tags on track title etc Check the specs of your CD player to see what it recorgnises ID3 is acurrent titling system that some sony CD headunits recognise.

    The Sony CDXMP-40 i am going to get for the missus has ID3 tags.
    I am sure that its a similar system used by media player and other PC CD player apps.

    The CDXl450 supports CD text so disc's encoded with this will display title and tracks.

    so why don't all relatively new CDs do this

    for example an older CD, Stereophonics does

    but a newer one, Norah Jones does not

    plain weird

    I think it's like MP3's the format has not fully taken off.
    Some companys encode the disc's with the information and some don't.

    it's a silly one this, the technology IIRC has been available since the conception of cd's and I think it should have made it to all players.

    no not mp3 this are just regular CDs

    it is just an option on nero

    not on the wizard which I always used

    just simply tick a box to include text

    it finds track names whilst online

    It would handy if CD player played MP3s

    can you copy a CD then convert the format to mp3?

    if so how?
