Angry Why do all my audio CDs burn as "Unknown Album/Unknown Artist"?


 
Hi all.

I used to use EZCD Creator 5's "Soundstream" app to burn MP3's to audio discs that could be played in any CD player. The great thing about that prog was that it let you name the disc whatever you wanted, and it also added the name and artist of each song on the disc. The album and song info would then be displayed by the CD player.

I recently got a LiteOn burner which won't work with SoundStream, so I'm burning my audio CDs with Nero. The problem is that every disc I burn with Nero just shows up as "Unknown Album/Unknown Artist" and the individual songs as "Unknown Artist/Track #".

Is there some setting I'm missing in Nero to allow it to maintain the titles in burned discs, or do I have to get another burning program? If so, can anyone recommend a good [b]CHEAP[/b] or free program that can do this?

Thanks

Yes, I just burned a test disc after making sure that CD-Text, and Disc-At-Once were checked, but still no difference.

If it matters I'm using Nero v 5.5.10.0

I have the same problem. Both my burners can read & write CD text but when backing up a CD with Nero, WinonCD, or EZCD I have to type in the track details. I know they can both read & write text because if I do a CD copy I can see the track details on the burned CD when playing on my DVD player.

In ALL of my CD playing software.

I used to use Windows' built in CD player to test the Title/Name function but even THAT displays them as "Unknown".
