Transferring vinyl LP's to CD

  aphrodite42 23:59 06 Oct 2009

I am in the process of transferring my LP's to CD using Audacity. I am saving each track as a separate WAV file and naming it accordingly but when I play the CD in Windows Media Player no track names appear like they do on a bought CD, only Track 1, Track 2 etc. Am I missing something or do the commercial CD's have some special code which identifies the track name?

You need to use CDText to name the tracks and to play the CD in a player which can read CD Text, not all of them can write or read CD Text.

Have you referred to the Audacity help/manual?
If yes you should find a section which covers the labelling of tracks. A bit fiddly so I din't bother when I converted several of my LPs. Not the best advice as I didn't test it fully , but it might, just might do the trick.....?
You could try Roxio Creator 7,5 - but that's not free of course. It does have a very good conversion facility though.....with lots of editing features....

Hi Lazarus, yes this is a continuation of my post on Computeractive forum - guys there were very helpful, just thought I would have a change of scene. I am using Nero as my burning software.
Hi Lhoanerin, I found the Audacity manual very hard to follow but found a tutorial on how to label tracks. It is a bit fiddly as you say but I have persevered and they are saved on the CD but, as I said, they don't show on WMP.
