When album information is displayed on a computer, it is a result of your CD being registered with the Gracenote or AllMusic databases. The Gracenote database provides album information to the following media players: iTunes, WinAmp, Quintessential Media Player, and Finder (Mac OS). The AllMusic database provides album information to the following media players: Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, and Real Music Player.
You can register your album by following these steps:
- Gracenote Registration – Register using iTunes 12
- AllMusic Registration – http://www.allmusic.com/product-submissions.
A similar but different technology is that of CD-Text, which shows album information that is actually encoded on your supplied master disc. CD-Text will only display on players that support it. The most common CD-Text capable players available today are aftermarket car stereos (for more information on CD-Text, please click here).
