    There must be a site out there somewhere that has a list of all the CDs with CD text.

    I've found unless its a Sony CD there's little to no chance its got CD-Text on it...which is why I always rip a copy of any CD that goes into the jukebox and give it CD-Text.

    I also have only noticed this on Sony/Columbia discs (and those I make myself).

    I thought I might be able to find a list on the Sony or Sony Music site but no luck.

    You know, with all the fuss about the record companies losing so much money to downloads, you would think they would give their customers this little added comfort, but nooo.... [​IMG]

    I made some CD copies with Nero for the car, and it can automatically add the info from CDDB as CD-Text [​IMG]

    I've often wondered why so few discs have this feature. I have 2000+ CDs and to the best of my recollection, less than 10 of them have CD text. The only solution that I can imagine is that Sony has some rights to this process and other studios would have to pay them royalties. Most of my mobile listening is via MP3 now, so this has less and less use for me, but as others have said this should be on every disc released - bar none!

    I've noticed CD-Text on more new CDs I've bought this year.

    I just checked my CD (that displayed text on the rental car radio) and it's a SONY CD. So what do you look for on a car radio that identifies CD Text capabilities? I originally thought it was that RDS (I think those are the initials) where it pulls down the text from radio stations, but since my car radio does that, but does not display CD Text, it must be something else.

    Is it just as simple as "CD Text Support/Capable"?? What do you look for?

    There's actually a CD-Text logo, I don't think anyone uses it. You can fidn it on google. I think virtually any MP3 capable CD player will also do CD text. My portable does it nicely. It should be somewhere in the spec for the unit that it can display CD Text.
