Burn music with CD Text in iTunes 7
Authored by: EricD on Sep 15, '06 01:20:45PM

I burned a CD the other day using iTunes 7 with CD Text enabled. I was able to verify that the CD Text was included on the disc using Toast which shows that iTunes burned the disc title, track title and artist name for each track. The problem is that only certain players seem to regonize it, even though they are supposed to support CD Text. For example, in my 2005 Nissan, the CD Text does not display using the CD player (it shows NO DISC TITLE, NO TRACK TITLE, etc) but it does display properly if I play it on the DVD player in the car. The text also does not appear on my Pioneer car stereo which also is supposed to support CD Text but at least the disc title shows on my Sony home DVD player.

I know there are two ways of saving CD Text information on a disc and my guess is that iTunes supports one way, not both, however it's odd that only DVD players have been able to correctly read the CD Text, not any of my CD players that support it. Anyone have any ideas on what's going on?
