Audio CDs dont keep MP3 tag info. EVER. Theyre not MP3 files that get burned to the CD and werent meant to keep that info. You can in some cases burn CD TEXT to the CD but that data is downloaded from the music databases and only works when burning a copy of a CD that is in that database

So can I take a html file or text file, or take the exported list from iTunes and place it along side the CD?

No. CD TEXT is written to the Disc automatically when the CD-Text option is enabled and it actually has data to write.

If I take my mp3 from my iTunes. Drag them onto the Toast Window, it takes my info and converts them into aiff files. When I do this, and hit burn the info is lost on the Artist. So I am thinking If I was to go into each new Aiff file, that is located in Toast, And add the info, then perhapes the info will stay, when I finish burning it.

Not gonna happen without CD-TEXT and even then only certain CD-Players will read it. Audio CDs just werent meant to preserve track data from MP3 files. Period.

When you copy an audio file from a CD, it contains NO information about what it is, who the artist is etc. Nothing. IF you are using the CDDB options when you copy that file FROM the CD the software does a lookup and might tell you what the name of the track is and put that in the saved AIFF's name. AIFF files arent like MP3 files, they dont contain track info etc. In other cases there may me a CD-TEXT file on the CD which would substitute for a CDDB lookup but that info is not stored in the AIFF or CD-Audio file.

I did it on my computer!


In iTunes I created a playlist called cd (lowercase).When I add songs from the library to the playlist and burn them to cd  (so I can eventualy re-import them as MP3s without all the music store AAC protection) the tracks contain al the id4 info. Track name, artist, album, everything except the artwork.  Everynow and then it stops burning the info and I deleate the cd playlist and recreate it and it works again, so there is infact a way to burn a cd and burn all the info onto the cd as well.  None of the other playlists do this, only if I name the playlist "cd" (without the quotes of course).

Can someone test this on their computer?


I'm running iTunes 4.7.0.42 on Windows XP SP2
