    I converted my MP3 into WAV using CDex 1.5 before burning it into a cd but when I play the cd, it doesn't show any info about the song. Please help.

    if you made into an actual audio CD instead of an MP3 CD or the such, it won't show the track name

    Very easy to tell difference. Can have over 100 MP3s compared to 20 songs CDA.

    Usually the best thing to do for something like this is to use Nero. It will automatically convert the mp3 files and use the tags from id3 .

    I though that's what CD-Text is? I've done numerous CDs in the past and on the hi-fi display it scrolls the artist - title across.

    Do you mean that if I used Nero straight away to make the audio cd, they'll show the info ?

    Teddy, can you tell me more about CD-Text ?

    Yes when you make an audio cd with nero - you put the mp3 tracks you want to have on the cd in. The program will automatically convert them to wav format while it burns them. It will get the info from them as long as the id3 tag's are set ...

    wmp9 does everything i need. i've found that ogg files don't come in that handy as the file size difference isn't all that great.

    Too true. WMA format has nice compression too.
