    Right hopefully this is an easy one to sort.
    Basically I make my own music using synths and Ableton Live 5 (great product).
    Then I render the files to .wav format (using Ableton) and name the tracks to burn onto a CD using Nero (pretty recent version and I normally just use the startsmart interface).

    What I've noticed is that Nero sometimes sets the artist's name to the same as the track name by default. (I don't do any setting of the artist's name. Ableton merely names the .wav file when it renders it)

    Or even more annoyingly, sometimes it will break the track name into two and put half of it as the track name and half as the artist's name. I have noticed use of certain characters such as ' can cause this.

    So my question is two-fold.

    How can I get Nero to simply use the track name I've selected, correctly and in full, and not apply any information to the artist's name field?

    And if I wished to put information seperately into the artist's name field and get that on the CD, how can I do that? Because some of my tracks are collaborations and I wish to acknowledge that.

    many thanks,

    It looks like Nero takes the filename and assumes the format is Artist - Title, so the file aaa - bbb.wav will be aaa for the artist and bbb for the title. So the easiest thing to do is name your files in that format.

    However you can edit the 2 fields if you want to. In the Nero Express file list, right-click on a song and choose properties. You can edit both Title and Artist.
