    How can the ISRC code from a song on a cd be read on a Mac?

    Thanks, that's great.
    I have one follow-up question.

    I checked all of my cd's, and only one third of them contain ISRC codes.
    Is there another way to get the ISRC code when it is not included on the cd?

    Thanks again.

    Are you asking how to read data that is not on the disc? That's hard.

    I think what you meant was how to get the album title and song titles. If you import the CD into iTune then iTunes will querry the on-line Gracenote database and pul down the I thin iTunes ignores the ISRC data and always goes to Gracenote.

    Other software can querry the database or other ones like it. XLD does a good job of this
