How to Burn Music to a CD With Titles & Not Track Listings
Many CD burners support the CD Text system, so take advantage by burning your CDs with CD Text. (cd-r image by matteo NATALE from

Many CD players, from car players to home stereos, now utilise the CD Text system to display information about the currently playing song and the artist that created it. Most CD-burning software programs do not automatically burn CD Text with audio CDs, however, instead burning them with generic "Track 1, Track 2..." titles. Utilise the CD Text capabilities of your CD player by burning CDs with text included.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Nero Burning ROM, Toast Titanium, or iTunes

  1. 1

    Select a playlist of songs that you wish to burn to a CD with CD Text. Organize these songs in your preferred CD-burning application and insert a blank CD in the drive.

  2. 2

    To burn CD Text using Nero Burning ROM, verify via the "Current Project" window that all song information, such as artist and title information, is displayed. Add any titles or artist names and make any necessary changes to existing data. Click "Burn," and Nero will burn your CD with the CD Text visible in the project window.

  3. 3

    To burn CD Text with Toast Titanium, you must first create a disk image of the audio CD. Edit the information of the tracks you want to burn to a CD via the project window, making certain that all song title and artist information is present. Select "Burn as BIN/CUE..." from the "Record" menu, and select a convenient location on your computer for the files.

  4. 4

    Open the "Record" menu once more and select " Burn From BIN/CUE..." From the browser window that opens, locate and select the BIN/CUE files that you just created. Click "OK," then select the box next to "Include CD Text" and click burn. Toast will burn your CD with title and artist information that will display on your CD player.

  5. 5

    Use iTunes to burn CDs for the easiest possible CD Text burning process. Simply create a playlist that you wish to burn, making certain that any artist and title information is present in the playlist window, then click "Burn" at the bottom of the iTunes window. Check the box next to "Use CD Text" and click "Burn." iTunes will burn your audio CD and any enclosed information about the files.
