I want to burn CD's from my mp3 files (which all have intact ID3
tags)and have the burned CD tracks contain the song title/artist
rather than Track01.cda, Track02.cda, etc.

Does this program suit your purposes?

No, Media Monkey uses an external HP burn engine that is the same as
all other burn engines, it cannot use the file name or ID 2/3 tag to
generate a *.cda filename so it is listed as Track01.cda, Track02.cda,
etc. instead of SongName.cda

Hi icudoc-ga,

    The plain vanilla Audio CD format cannot store song title/artist
information, regardless of how you name it. If you want to store this
information along with the songs on an Audio CD, you will need to
create a CD Text Audio CD which allows for storage of additional
information (e.g. album name, song name, and artist) on a
standards-compliant audio CD. The CD Text standard was introduced in
1996, and has widespread support among cd players/media software.
     I can post the name of software applications that would allow you
to easily create these enhanced Audio CDs. Whenever you play these
cd's on CD-Text supporting hardware or software, you will be able to
view the stored information.
     Please indicate if that would be an acceptable answer to your question.

There is no answer at this time.

I believe the newest version of Nero (7) now allows you to burn your
audio with expanded file names (instead of track01, track02, etc). 
Plus, I recall that it keeps the tag info as well.  Here is a link
that talks specifically about that feature, look for 'expanded file

I will play with it tonight to see.

Thanks very much. I looked at the website and don't have much faith
that the burn would include titles. Let me know what you find after
you "play". Thanks again.

capture, media management, audio merge, drag and drop support,
MP3/WMA/OGG and proprietary WAV tag editing.

itunes 7  Has an option to
include cd text within the burning preferences that allows you to
embed the track names.  Plus it's free.
