How to Get Track Names on iTunes

apple's itunes logoWe gets asked a lot about how to get track names on itunes. Well, that’s not really how it happens, we get calls saying we did something wrong because when their CD was shoved into a computer and itunes grabbed it, someone else’s name and song titles are showing on the computer screen.

How did someone else get track names on itunes with my CD?

Luckily for all of us, none of this data comes from the disc (which means its not a manufacturing issue) instead it comes from an online database and what people see in this case is just a guess by the database as to what you’ve just put into your computer.

Get Track Names on iTunes

Now this doesn’t GET your music on itunes for sale what this does is incorporate your information in the database that itunes and Window’s media player utilize. And there are many many servers that make up this database and so from whichever one your information first goes into, it takes time to filter and update through each one.

Don’t get this database confused with CD-Text that does get embedded in your master in the studio. That’s something altogether different.

If you have questions, please free to contact us via the support page at even if you haven’t used our services for manufacturing, we welcome the opportunity to introduce you to the high level of knowledge and experience that CDMaker can offer.

In the meantime, remember to like this page if you enjoy free helpful information.

Data CD Reproduction in Austin Texas

We’ve had a lot of people call us to ask if we do data cd reproduction in Austin, Texas. The long and short answer is YES!

A data CD as long as you have already confirmed all your data fits onto a single CD which you can do by burning your master, is definitely right up our alley. Its going to stay exactly as you have your master set up so when you receive your copies back, they will match your master file for file.

Music CDs tend to be a little more involved because how fast the data is duplicated will affect the sound quality.

Reproduction can take place in two ways – duplication (which is great for quantities of less than 500) and replication (which is suitable for quantities 500 +). Which one is best? Hard to say, in our 24 years of producing audio/video/data content, there are times where normally we would duplicate but once we know what someone wants to use it for, we recommend replication. Of course, usually this also means upping the quantity desired so that replication is as cost effective as it can be.
