CDA is known to be a little flaky with regards to writing ISRC codes (it will write 0's). It really depends on CDR drive you are using. I hear an update will greatly improve, if not fix this aspect -

I had the same problem. Sony advised me to go back to CD Architect 5.2a which does write ISRC codes correctly.

I also noted that ISRC codes inserted in Sound Forge do not carry over to CD Architect as UPC and Regions do. In other words the ISRC code must be manually inserted again CD-Architect's track list.

I believe Sony will clean this up because it is increasingly important. One of my clients markets through Best Buy and Wal-Mart. Both have indicated they will not accept product without ISRC codes. Additionally there are other extended codes that are quite useful.

I'm having the same problem. Sony tech support said they are "aware of the problem", but have no date when it will be fixed. I got 5.2b with my SoundForge9.0 upgrade. The website doesn't have an installer for 5.2a other than the upgrade from 5.0 to 5.2a.

Where do you get the installer for 5.2a?

Just in case, I tried the 5.0->5.2a upgrade installer, and it worked fine without having to install 5.0. Well, the installer actually exited with an error at the very end, saying it didn't install anything. But there it was...

Oh, and did I mention -- ISRC WORKS!!!!

Now I can finally release the master. Whew...
