CD and file info
When you insert an audio CD into your disc drive and invoke the Rip CD Audio dialog box, you automatically get information about your CD files such as title, duration, artist, genre, and year.
Note: If the metadata language of your audio CD is different from your computer’s operating system’s language, CD and file information may not be displayed properly. To view these metadata strings properly:
Switch the code page of your operating system to the audio CD’s language by setting options in Control Panel: Regional Settings.
Install unicode tools that will re-map the unicode character sets if you are using Windows XP or Vista.
You can also view other properties of your CD files or acquire additional information by querying an Internet music database.
To do this, click
and select any of the following options:
Show File Info Opens the File Properties dialog box to display file information such as name, format, size, frame rate, and compression, and other attributes.
Update CD Info from CD-Text on Audio CD Refreshes the CD info from the CD- Text information encoded on the audio CD. An album and its tracks can have separate CD-Text.
Update CD Info from Internet Opens the Get CD Info from Internet Database dialog box to allow you to query track info from the freedb server. Click Access to start the connection then select the information to be included on disc. Click Select when done.
freedb.org is an online music database that includes CD artists, track lists, and others. Burn.Now lets you connect to the freedb server to get the information from the online database. For more information on getting CD and file info, see “Setting preferences”.
Note: Internet connection is needed to connect to the online database.
