Projects / Disc-Cover


Disc-cover provides an easy way to produce covers for audio CDs. It scans audio CDs and uses information from the CDDB or CDINDEX database to build a back and front cover for the CD. Output is in Latex, Dvi, PDF, Postscript, HTML, plain ASCII, or any other format suited for cdlabelgen.

            Absolutely fabulous
            This is really one of the best tools I have on my machine. It's so great that I decided that I wanted to use it even for cd's I've compiled myself, so I've written createcddb for it. I really really like disc-cover, thank you very much for writing this magnificent program!

            How about MP3 CDs?

            Nice program!

            I have this

            project very similar this one but which displays the directory structure of MP3 or archive CDs in LaTeX format...

            Great program!
            This is an easy way to replace all those lost covers :) Especially since I have a cdwriter, I've lost quite a few covers, and this program does a nice job replacing them. Just insert the cd, type disc-cover and with a bit of luck you're ready to lpr your new cover. You can also use disc-cover to create a new CDDB file (in case your cd is not in the CDDB database). You'll only have to fill in the track and artist/album data, because the track/total time is detected and used automatically.

            This really is a timesaver.
