Do you mean how to get CDA ti import your artist, track and album names prior to burning?
Do you mean how to get CDA to burn these names?

Is the CD an existing commercial cd, or a "home-made"?

Not quite understanding teh question, so can't answer it yet..

OK. Few things here.

1) Properties page. The summary info will be read by compatbile products, say like a car stereo to read the title and artist info. The CD Universal product code/media catalog number is a barcode. You can't just put anything in.. If you are looking to sell this cd commercially, there a many things you need to do, and learn. If it's not a commercial release, then the barcode is not mandatory. (the barcode is what identifies your product in the real world, so when a shop scans the code, it is known as what it is, - just like in a supermarket and they scan the food - you get the rest :) )

2) 'Explorer' text is for each track naming. ISRC is a unique code for each track. Again, if you're looking to retail this commercially, you need ISRC codes for each track. IF not, leave them blank.

3) CD Text will only be written to cd if:
a) You have a CD Burner that supports CD text (most modern drives do)
b) You select the "write Cd text" tab in the burn menu

Now, FWIW. 5.2c has a bug which can prevent your drive writing ISRC codes to the disc (they will all come out as 0's). This should be addressed in an update as far as I am aware.
