Just a quick question,
I was wondering if the rockford system will display what song title is playing on a Mp3 player, (if it was plugged in to the Aux jack) like you can for Cd's?????? thanks!!!! :smoke: :cheers:

The head unit will not even display song titles of MP3's burned onto disc.
I've been using Nero 7 for burning as well as Exact Audio Copy. The file info is pulled down from the internet database just fine, but once burned onto disc the song info is not carried over. Are you manually entering this information and where?

Are you creating an audio CD by converting MP3s or are you creating an MP3 CD that contains actual .mp3 files? An audio CD won't have any audio tags unless the software and head unit support CD-Text.

Copying MP3s directly to a CD and playing them in an MP3-capable head unit will display the ID3 tag data on the display.

I suspect you're creating an audio CD and not an MP3 CD.
I first rip all my songs to mp3. Then when later inspired, I burn a compilation onto disc. I create a datadisc , which might be the problem. If I remember it right, if I burned the compilation as an audio disc, I couldn't add as many files as with a data disc. I'll have to try burning it as an audio disc again to see if this is the case.

So, if I understand you, burning as an audio disc and not a data disc will put in the song tags?

I use nero also. I am buring to an "audio cd" and I change the tags manually if I have to under the "properties" button.
Dang, thats too much work.
