Displaying CD track names.

When I put a CD in, it doesn't display the track names in the playlist. It just says Track 1, etc.

How can I get it to display the track names?

This works in Windows Media Player.

Winamp no longer knows how to lookup metadata.

according to DrO.

the only thing left is to rip the CD to your HD and type the names yourself or find another piece of software that let's you search the net for the data you need.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream

Thanks. Who is DrO?

Why don't they renew their Gracenote license?

Thanks for the info.

I do rip my CDs, but I do also still like playing them directly too sometimes.

Would wacup be able to display the track titles?

Would I be able to use one of the skins that I have for Winamp in wacup?

Just for FYI in case someone else runs across this thread (I also still play audio CD's in my PC sometimes), still not developed in WACUP, but maybe someday if DrO has time...

This has been working in WACUP for awhile now. Read my reply to your post in the WACUP forum. What I didn't say in my reply is that you need to have enabled the input Audio CD Plug-in (in_cdda.dll).
