CD-Text display

Hello,

I have Winamp 5.35 installed and I was wondering if it has the ability to display CD-Text.
Winamp version history says the following:

Winamp 5.31
* New: [in_cdda] CD Text reading support (with sonic engine enabled)

I burned some CDs with CD-Text using Nero (I checked them with EAC, the CD-Text is there), and I enabled the Sonic engine in the in_cdda.dll plugin configuration, but Winamp just displays: "Unknown Artist - Track X".

It looks to me that the CD-Text reading support is just for ripping purposes, is it not?

Also, I have tried installing Jentschi's CD-Text plugin (v1.4.5) but when I try to run Winamp, it crashes.

Is there any way to display CD-text in Winamp?
Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

Isn't there a kind soul that can enlighten me on the CD-Text subject?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Right click on one of the CD tracks in the playlist, select 'View File Info'
(or 'Edit CD Info' if in the Rip & Burn view in the ML)
and click the 'CD Text' button.

Thank you for your reply, DJ Egg.
Unfortunately, when I click the 'CD Text' button, nothing happens.
All I see is "Unknown Album", "Unknown Artist", "Track X". Nothing changes when I click the CD Text button.

I guess there's no CD Text for me.

PS: Sorry for taking so long to reply. I had problems with my internet connection.
