Creating Audio CDs from WAV files

I know this is not exactly new but maybe it needs restating. Without knowing the fact that CD disk drives do not, in general, write CD-TEXT to a disc, I purchased Nero Burning ROM 2015 to create some audio discs from WAV files that I created in Adobe Audition CC 2014. After much angst I finally discovered through the use of Nero Infotool that my CD drives are not CD-TEXT enabled and thus the creation of an Audio CD completes without any track or album information. In many ways my purchase of Nero Burning ROM 2015 turns out to be wasted money. So my idea is that an advisory to download Nero Infotools and validate performance of a CD drive before purchasing Nero Burning ROM 2015 should be an essential step. Now I must seek out a CD-TEXT enabled CD Drive to install on my PC!

  • All modern CD-Writers support CD-Text. What CD-Writer do you have?

    e.g. indifferent, undecided, unconcerned kidding, amused, unsure, silly happy, confident, thankful, excited sad, anxious, confused, frustrated

  • It seems to be a misconception that all CD writers are compatible with writing CD-TEXT in that whilst an Optical disc may be able to READ CD-TEXT it does not mean that the optical disk can WRITE CD-TEXT. I will attach 3 GIF images that show the result of the test run on my optical disks. This is the best way I can demonstrate the difference between read and write capability. If a person wishes to create an Audio CD from original WAV files, the inability of an optical disk to actually write CD-Text is a key factor.

  • Please remember: Nero Info Tool is an outdated tool, it is not longer supported.
    It may not give correct output for modern writers.

    For example Samsung Super-WriteMaster SH-S223C.

    It can write CD-Text. Have you tested this with nero burning rom?
