Hi,

I'm in the process on implementing Audio CD Burning, everything works fine however I come across the problem of he limitation of the length of the CD Text to by 32 Char. My Question here is why this limitation of 32, in fact there is plenty of space; with 30 tracks, for example, the average length of the information per track can almost be 100 characters - so this should really not cause any problems. So why can we only use 32 and is there any option to set it higher?

Here some more details:
A CD-Text "Block" may be made up of a maximum of 256 so-called "Packs".
4 packs are needed for internal purposes.
The other 252 packs can be used for CD-Text information.
Each pack contains 12 characters.
Thus a total of 3024 characters of CD-Text can be saved.
One character is needed as a separation character per track, thus with the maximum number of 99 tracks (+ 1 pseudo-track for the CD title), 2924 characters remain. If artist and title are entered for every track, 2 * 100 characters have to be subtracted, as artist and title are saved separately (so 2 separation characters per track are required), i.e. 2824 characters still remain - there are still 28 characters per track (for artist and title, i.e. e.g. 19 characters each for artist and title or any other distribution)!

Hello,

What do you use for development your application - Native StarBurn SDK or COM wrapper - StarBurnX?

Regards,

Dmitry

Hi Dima,

I'm using the StarBurnX12.dll together with StarburnX.dll and the RocketDivision.StarBurnX12.Interop.dll. the development environment is VSTD 2008 and I'm developing in VB.Net.

Cheers

Antonio

Hello, Antonio

Unfortunately we CAN'T change the current behavior of CD-TEXT right now :( . We need time to investigate your information and time to make decision to implement it :)

Regards,

Dmitry

So do you know whether or not more than 32 chars are possible? I get quite some requests about that, and as far as I know, there is a possibility to have longer texts.
