Is that the right acronym? The place iTunes queries when you pop in a new CD? CDDB...?<br><br>Anyhoo, I had a funny thing happen: I stumbled across an old CD I picked up years ago at a market somewhere...a, *cough*, bootleg compilation of outtakes...but probably the most precious recordings I have, and I realized that I had never got around to backing it up. So I just popped it in my CD tray, up jumps iTunes, 'Querying CDDB' etc, yeah sure, you won't find these tracks in there...and waddya know, there they are - CD name, track names. <br><br>What's going on there? Is this a genuine peer-to-peer database of some sort that crosses, ahh, strict copyright boundaries? I just assumed it was some kind of compiled-from-industry database.<br><br>Pretty impressed, tho!<br><br>deebee<br><br>

The database system works on cd names submitted by users of the system. And works on part of the music data to recognise a track(i think). So a dodgy compilation CD would pick up the track names if they were submitted by someone else.<br><br>“Here can be found the last words of Joseph of Arimathea.
