    Default Importing From Microsoft Works to OrangeCD

    I started my database last year with Microsoft Works not realizing that there is a maximum # of entries = 32,000
    The data I've entered so far is all from LPs and is in the following form:
    Field 1 = Song Title
    Field 2 = Performer
    Field 3 = Album Title
    Field 4 = Format (LP, CD, CASS, Etc.)
    Is there some way to get this info transferred to my just started OrangeCD database?? Thanks.

    If you're able to convert your existing database to cdplayer.ini format, you should be able to import your collection into OCD using Database | Import and export.... and then select Import from Windows CD Player.

    You probably already have a cdplayer.ini file in your C:\Windows folder. CDPlayer.ini is a file that is used to store album information. It was originally generated by the default CD player that shipped with Windows 95/98. Other audio programs have adopted this standard, and can read and write to this file.

    Here's a sample:


    artist=Glenn Miller
    title=Big Bands
    0=In The Mood
    1=Pennsylvania 6-5000
    2=Moonilight Becomes You
    3=Sunrise Serenade
    4=Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree
    5=Moonlight Serenade
    6=Elmer's Tune
    7=Goin' Home
    8=Juke Box Saturday Night
    9=Tuxedo Junction
    10=Chattanooga Choo Choo
    11=Caribbean Clipper
    12=Moonlight Cocktail
    13=American Patrol
    14=At Last
    15=(I've Got A Gal In) Kalamazoo
    16=Danny Boy
    17=Serenade In Blue
    18=A String Of Pearls
    19=I Know Why
    20=Little Brown Jug

    This may provide some useful info about cdplayer.ini: [url][/url]

    The CDPlayer Playlist Converter (PLC) may be of some help. Take a look at [url][/url]. PLC is freeware.
