    Anyone,

    I transferred an lp to cdr over the weekend,

    popped it in my laptop at work today (MusicMatch)

    and a pop up window tells me the closest it can

    find for this cd from CDDB is Judas Priest -

    Unleased In The East. Yes that was the lp, but

    how did CDDB know?? In the past I figured there

    was some sort of digital id tag for this on regular

    recorded cd's but this is a cdr. I had no cd text

    or name tracks .....

    Must be looking at the number of tracks and time????

    What's up????

    I'm still surprised that transferring it from LP to CD came up with the proper results! I mean, it's either a perfect match or it isn't, right?

    "individual track times with a +/- of 5 seconds. "

    If it is not a "perfect" match, the software will pop up with 1 or more choices stating "your disc looks like xxx by xxx, is this correct" or something very similiar.

    All,

    The "1" and only choice it came up with was the

    correct one. I was surprised at this as well thinking

    many more choices would fit the criteria of just those

    two parameters.

    Most of my cdr burns are compilations of 14 to 20

    tracks using up the whole disc, but its never taken

    a shot at naming any of those??? Thats why it caught

    me by surprise when it actually "knew" the disc.
