Importing track information

Postby jerrysnb » Wed Oct 24, 2018 9:48 am

I know I'm years late to this party, but I have a suggestion:

I used my CD creation software to export the tracks as MP3 files. Label maker can import the tracks from the MP3s.

How much information is in the tracks depends upon the program you used to create and edit the CD contents, but it's likely to give you a good start. In my case, I wanted the MP3s as well as the CD, so it wasn't much extra work.

The biggest nuisance is that you can only do one MP3 at a time.

Hi,

If you save a playlist in whatever program you're using, Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker can probably import the playlist.

I'll have to try that. I did a quick test, and it looks like it would work. I don't use Windows Media Player, so I didn't even think about playlists.

Is there a limit to the number of tracks that can be imported? I have a playlist with 34 tracks, and the program only imports the first 17.

Windows Media Player shows them all.

Hi,

Maybe you need to enlarge the text box? And maybe make the font size smaller?

I guess I wasn't clear.

The track listing dialog box only shows the first 17 (out of 34) tracks. That was a Windows Media Player style playlist. WMP shows all 34 tracks.

If I import a tab-delimited text file I don't have that problem.

Here's the WMP-compatible playlist. Label Maker won't import it at all unless you have the actual MP3 files. Can you get what you want from the playlist file, or do you want the MP3s as well?

Sorry, I didn't notice that you want me to open a ticket. I will.
