My touch CD player doesn't show artist or track info

I need some feedback on this topic. I contact my touch support desk and they advise me that with the newer model the player doesn't show track or artist info. I find that hard to believe. I visit these forum a lot and I never notice any problems with Cd player not showing track info. Please offer feedback.

Was the CD burned or bought Retail?

Not all CD's are encoded with that information.

I'm assuming this CD was one you burned yourself. If you burned it as an Audio CD (uncompressed aiff) and you happen to use iTunes, you must alter the settings under "Burning" to "Include CD Text." If it's an MP3 CD, then you've got a whole other issue. Let us know. We're happy to help!

Do you have the Sony system? Anyway I also notice on my Sony system that brand new store bought cd's that show track & artist info on Itunes and other media software does not show up on the Sony system. I tried different CD's and still didn't work. However I don't normally listen to CD's and havn't tried to many but noticed the same issue when I did. I think most people don't use the CD player much therefore not to many complaints, yet.

if it's a burned cd, you cannot burn it as a music cd. it has to be burned as a data cd (so you have to make sure all the tracks are mp3 (or playable audio format) or they won't all play). if it's burned as a data cd all MP3 encoding will be preserved and will show up on the screen. any other way (burned as a music cd, or purchased directly from retail) will not show up as anything other than untitled.

I also noticed this.. I rarely ever burn cd's, I'm one of the few who still buys them all in the store when they get released and only one cd showed up with the Artist/Track title.. every other one didn't.
