    Ok, so I want to burn a CD, farely simple. However, I want to include the lyrics to the songs on the same CD, is there any way I can do that? I don't want to create an MP3 CD, I just want a regular audio CD (some CD players still play MP3 CD's).

    Thanks!

    Could be I'm not aware of some more obscure method to do this, but basically no, you can't--the "true" audio CD format is VERY basic, and has provisions for essentially NOTHING but audio and tracks. It doesn't even have any way to give track titles, though there was a modification more recently to allow CD Text.

    You could, however, use Toast or the like to burn an audio CD with a small data partition that contained... something with the lyrics, I guess.

    How are you intending to use these lyrics, anyway?

    I just want to be able to insert the CD into a computer and be able to view the lyrics of the songs while listening. However, this wouldn't be a problem if I didn't also want it to be playable on CD players.
