Cannot retain MP3 tags when converted to CDA files

  1. When using Nero 6 or WMP, all my MP3's lose their tags (song title, artist,...etc) after copying them onto what's to be a CDA disc. The music converts to the CDA format and plays normally, but no song title and artist name appear in any CD player; just Track 1.CDA, ...etc.
    This is driving me crazy. I hope someone knows how I can correct this problem. Thank you in advance to all who offer insight. Desorow

    The MP3 and CDA are Completely Different. You can't expect data to just copy over magically. (You are not using an Apple there! :p )

    There is a thing called CD Text that lets you store track info on the audio CD. Nero supports it for sure. Your CD writer has to support it and of course the CD player has to support it too.

    If I converted the files to WAV files why would they be converted to CDA files when copied to the CD. Now there is no sound?
