I am not sure if this question is going to the right group, but some of you
might be able to give useful answer.

player, instead of having to use the CD case. or us it, maybe it can be done
and the manufactures are too lazy to use the system.
If it can not be done, I am sure it would not be a difficult task to

probably wasnt thought of at that time. For one, people were probably
glad at the time just to have digital audio, and having the playing
time count up on the display as it played, and also the manufacturers
probably didnt want the expense of alphanumeric displays in the CD
Biggest problem of all here is of course that the record industry is a
government protected monopoly and wouldn't be innovative or move with
the times even if its life depended on it. We should consider
ourselves lucky that we ever got to have the CD :)
if you want this however, use winamp or such on your PC. it connects
back to a database online and works out the track and artist names of
almost all CDs based on the playing times of the tracks. bit
inconvenient, but dont know of other ways.
