How do I create or check CD-Text on my audio cds

CD Text. Learn about it on Wiki cd text

If you provide a .gi image file of your cd, we copy the data bit for bit (exactly). This includes your cd text and title text.

If you provide a zip file with .mp3 files or .wav files, we burn them using your project name as the album title and your file names as the track names.

CD Text can be used to populate internet databases that programs like iTunes and Windows Media player use to identify an album.

You need to upload the track and CD title information to the free service at gracenote.com.  You can also add this data on your own computer through iTunes.  Then the titles of the tracks and the CD title will appear when the CD is uploaded on any computer to iTunes or Windows Media.

To view the CD-Text on any cd you have, including those we make for you, you need a free program like audio grabber. http://www.audiograbber.org/ http://www.audiograbber.org/download.html or Audio Grabber Free download

Once installed, you will see a screen like this, but your CD-Text will not be displayed yet.  Look below for details:

By default, album and track titles are “grabbed” from internet databases such as freedb. Important: To check your discs CD-Text data, choose the menu setting “CD-Get Track Names from CD-TEXT”
