:crap:

i just installed my clarion. I abs. love it!. I was wondering how to display text.

I understand the CD's have to have the CD text option.

But for burning cd's?, I was reading my clarion manual and it said to display songs on a burnt disc 's there needs to be a .m3u file?

I was wondering where I could fine this. Also, i have itunes (what I use for burning.) I was looking in the options and saw that I can import .m3u's. Would it work that way?

Alright I was looking thru itunes again. It has an option where I can convert ID3 tags. I picked v2.3. Next time I burn a CD will it display?

Go back into the id3 tag converter in your burning program and undo whatever you did to make the tags v2.3. Most head units that support id3 tag info only decode id3 v1 tags. And most importantly - id3 tag info for .mp3 files is not the same thing as CD Text info for .cda files (regular, normal, everyday CD audio)
The id3 tags are what makes your computer's media program (whatever you use ~ WinAmp, Windows Media Player, MusicMatch Jukebox, etc) know the track title, song artist, album name, etc for each file you listen to. Most, but not all, .mp3/.wma compatible decks can decode this information also.

CD Text is information burnt into a CD-R/RW that is filled with normal .cda files (yanno...18 to 20 songs rather than 200) along with the musical information that serves the same purpose as id3 tags for .mp3s

I am not familiar with itunes as I use Nero but I will assume, like Nero, somewhere along the process of creating a music cd, there will be a checkbox that tells the burning program to include CD Text info when it burns the disc. Additionally there should be somewhere to edit that info in the event that it wasn't included in the original source or it's incorrect. I cannot tell you how to do it in itunes but I will assume it's there somewhere. Have a look thru the Help or the ReadMe for that program - it oughta tell ya how.

Good luck!

My cd player even had the little ID3 tag on the box, it also had windows media player on it. So I;m guessing my chances are high for displaying some type of text.


Sweet, that is exactly what I needed. I checked my HU manual this morning and it sait ver v1 to 2.4. I wonder what the difference is. :uhoh:

Also to save cd's I'm going to try to pop in a burnt cd already and see if I can convert them on the disc. (.mp3's only.)

mp3 disk = data disc.

if the ID3 tags are already on the MP3's the cd player will automatically read them

when burning a normal .wav cd, you will have to turn on the cd text thing.

ok so i DLed nero 6.6 and in my alpine owners manual is says that it only supports ID3 tag V1 and V2. for all my music the tag says ID3 V2.3 & ID3 V1.1/.
will it still work?

i wasted 3 CDs last night and dont want to waste any more. that why im asking all these q's. lol

flakko
07-19-2005, 04:48 PM

its not alpines fault. its either your: CD-R's (wat kind do you have?), your burner, or your computer as a whole.

i just dipped into my dads cds and it burned when i used the image recorder to burn it. then when i put it into the car it reads as error. but the CD writer IDE1610wont even let me burn it.

lol, this is just crazy. im used to using windows media for burning CDS. all of this is new to me.

From the looks of it, a lot of you seem to have CD Text and ID3 tags mixed up. CD Text is what comes up from a normal music cd, ie: non mp3 disc. When choosing to create a cd in nero, you have the option to label the Artist and Title of the CD. I do believe that if your mp3s are tagged correctly, via ID3 tags, nero can import this information and provide you with accurate titles of the songs.

ID3 tags are simply for your mp3 files. There are ID3 v1 and v2 tags, with their variations. It depends on the media player on which it chooses to use. If your head unit supports mp3 cds, then it will obviously be reading these ID3 tags. All of my music uses ID3 v2.3 and my alpine reads them flawlessly.

Just to let everyone know you do NOT have the CD text function in itunes. Only the ID3. Like stated cd text=music ID3=MP3
