silly question time
but why does my cd player recognise the track names of some CDS but not others
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.
they should standardise these things
couldn't find anything about tags
it is a sony cdx-L450
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
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.
they need a kick up the bottom
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.
is it legal to make back up copies of cds for the car?
If it is most of us are breaking the law ....
and I hate that Cds dont use text ..so i have to copy it to mp3 just so I can Id tag them
well after burning loads using Nero for the car I then found out how to add text on to all of them so I have been reburning today on Nero
bobbles is that in mp3 format you add the text ?
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?
Separate names with a comma.
