Cover designer track listings

Postby davehelm on Tue Jan 28, 2003 3:13 pm

Anyone know how to get the document information (track listings) into cover designer by using the CDDB. I usually do it by making an audo CD compilation in nero the launching the cover designer. Problem is that doesen't work if you just do a disk copy.

I have never been able to figure out how to access CDDB directly from Cover Designer, presumably because it can't be done(?). So, like you, I do the work-around of accessing it through Nero and then launching Cover Designer from within Nero.

In order to get your trick to work with for a simple disc copy, open the "File"->"Preference" menu and select the "Database" tab, then make sure the "Open the database during 'CD copy'" box is checked at the bottom of the dialog. While you are there you might want to make sure all three "Open the database..." boxes are checked.

When select you "Copy" from the disc copy dialog, Nero will begin the copy process by analyzing the disc (getting the disc information by reading the first few sectors), and then Nero will open up the database interface and allow you to select the CD and print the CD cover.

After you have opened up Cover Designer by pressing "Print CD Cover" in the Nero dialog, you can either continue with the actual disc copy in Nero or cancel it if all you really wanted to do was print the cover.

Well - it looks up the cd in the cddb but after the burn the icon to launch the cover designer is grayed out. Why even look the disk up in cddb?

Yes, you can't do it after the burn. You have to launch Cover Designer at the start of the burn when the CD database dialog is visible. Hit the "Print CD Cover" button in the lower left corner.

I agree that this isn't very intuitive, but that is what we have to work with. Personally, I think Nero should be able to launch Cover Designer at any time, and Cover Designer should have an "Import Tracks" button that allows it to access the CDDB with or without Nero. It should also have an "Search CD Database" button that allows one to search the database by artist/title even without a disc in any drive.

Thanks, your feedback was very helpful. Put me on the petition to get Ahead to provide CDDB capabilities in cover designer.
