    I have noticed recently that when I enter track names for my audio CD's using Musicmatch Jukebox or Windows CD Player that I can type all the track names but when I put the CD in next time none of the tracks are named. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I have already checked that cdplayer.ini is not read only.

    I have Win98SE & Music match Jukebox V7.

    Thanks

    OK. I've found the problem.
    Apparently when the cdplayer.ini file gets to 68kb it will add new track titles but the ones on the list will be deleted to make room for it.
    Mine didn't do that it just wouldn't accept any more data at all, so I opened it in wordpad and deleted all the old stuff I didn't need.
    So now it works again...until it gets filled up again.

    If you're using an regular CD in MusicMatch, it should try to connect to the online database to get the track info. Otherwise if it is mp3 format you can edit the tag for each track and it will never change unless you change it.
