    Default CD player

    Can some one explain in layman terms how my display panel can display the track and cd title etc from a copy, but on brand new ones displays the track number only?

    Can't get my head why it does it this way and not the other way round. Do any techno heads know what can be done if anything!! Thanks in advance for the usual help one gets back from this site.

    It also works if you play an original CD that contains CD text (Wham's greatest hits for example)

    Basically, in general mass produced CD's don't have CD Text on the disc. However, most home CD Burners have this built in as standard and burn the text to the CD which is then read by a CD Text enabled player.

    I reckon I have around 200 original CDs and only one has CD text titles.

    I don't know if there's any difference between UK and Oz, or between different genres of music, but I would say probably half of my collection has CD text. Its mainly rock/punk/metal though, very very little chart stuff.
