Any More Suggestion ?


Still trying to find the right combination for my Enhanced CD Project. . .

I want to keep the cda music files on the CD so the CD will play on Home CD players and Car CD players as well as a Computer's.

I already have an Autorun to launch the Flash movie for interactive purposes and I can get Winamp to launch at a designated point in the movie. Now if possible I want to get Winamp to play the cda files already on the CD instead of have to add MP3 files too (Then I would have doubles of each song).

I've tried adding files to Winamp through the Playlist Entries :

SongTitle.cda - It didn't work
Track01.cda - Didn't work

I'm trying not to designate a Drive letter so it would check for the music on the Drive that the CD is already in.

But just out of curiosity I even tried to open winamp and select :

Play/Directory/D;\ (D Drive)

and got nothing. . . . .The Audio CD Project (cda files) don't even show up on Play/File

I'm stumped. . . .

I don't know if on other Enhanced CD's how they do it. . .
I'm not sure if they somehow Stream the music off the CD. . .but I know it can be done since I have Enhanced CD's of other Artists that Play in a normal CD player and Have the interactive on ther computer and when a button is pressed it launches a player and plays the CD in cda format.

Any other suggestions ?

I wonder if I should try to contact a Record company and see how they do it ( if possible and they would even tell me).

Thanks for any help on this,

The only way to play .CDA tracks on enhanced CD's in Winamp is via:
Main Menu -> Play -> Audio CD
That's why it's best to include MP3 versions, linked to by an M3U playlist.

If the CDA tracks aren't playing in normal hi-fi CD Players, then you're doing something wrong. Make sure you're using CD-R disks, not CD-RW.
