Ok I've read so many post on whether Waveburner 1.6.1 can burn an audio CD with CD-text, and have it work on CD players that can read CD-Text. Well so far I haven't got any anwers. Some say it works, but other say it doesn't.


I have a project that I'm trying to burn an audio CD with the CD-Text option on, on my G5 quad-core 2.8ghz machine and Mac OS 10.6.7 and I've inserted all the information, and then do a burn with a CD-R disc, but no CD-text has come up on 3 different CD players that I've tried them on.


Can anyone tell me if the Apple Disc Burner can actually do this, or will it only work once I give the Master CD to a duplication house, which is what I'm about to do? Anyone's help is appreciated!


My burner info is the following: (I don't see CD-Text in the Write Strategies section, if it's suppose to be there)
