Why do only some of my CDs show song/artist information?

This answer applies to:

  • R3 Mk1
  • R4 Mk3
  • R5 Mk1
  • R7 Mk3

Track information will only be displayed if the CD is encoded with CD-Text. CD-Text is an extension of the original standard for CDs and allows for additional information such as song name and artist name to be stored on the CD. If CD-Text is not available then only track number and time will be shown.

For CDs that you create yourself in WAV or MP3/AAC format, then in general track information will be displayed. If this is not the case, please check the settings in the programme you use to create your discs.
