CD track names?

I finally played a CD today in my new 2012 Limited with nav/Entune. It was an actual old-fashioned from the store CD (as opposed to burned on iTunes) and it's not showing the track names, just Track 1, Track 2. I haven't tried any others yet, so maybe it's just certain ones, but from what I saw in the manual, it should be showing the actual names all the time.

Shouldn't it?

I play CDs all the time in my RAV. Commercial ones show the name of the CD. Ones I burn myself do not.

White 2011 V6, base with upgrades.

I don't have Entune, but here's my take on it.

I don't think that you will see the track names from regular "old-fashioned" CD. I recalled that only one of my original CDs did that but it was recorded in a special way from the factory.

Unless Entune can connect through your phone and communicate with a database of songs, I don't see how this info can be displayed.

Of course, MP3s usually contain the info in the track file; so no internet connection is needed to get the info.

I have many older cd's that do not display names. I don't know at what time that info started being burned into the cd's.

This is a brand new CD, I mean, just released like 2 weeks ago. As I said, I haven't tried any others yet. I understand about the homemade burned ones not showing names.

I don't play that many CDs anyway, but this particular one I'd like to learn the names of the tracks!!

There are apps for mobile phones. Just point the app to the music being played and it will give you the lyrics ... in sync with the songs! One of them is MusicMatch. I am sure there are others out there.

I am not sure what phone you have and if MusicMatch can be made to display the lyrics or title names on the Entune player though.

That sounds cool for the phone, anyway. I wonder if I have the Entune app on on the phone if that makes any difference? I haven't used it yet, don't want it to eat up data and the nav without Entune has been good enough so far.

Not all CDs have track names.

I wrote one of the first programs to automate CD & DVD archiving for government libraries and am intimately familiar with the structure of these things. Some have entire liner text that does not show on any device, most do not.

Well I just tried a few regular CDs and it showed track names on only one of them. I guess it's just the encoding or whatever it is they do when they make the CDs. I was hoping there was a setting of some sort.
