This unit will do CD-Text. Yamaha has tested it with success on commercial disks and disks produced using consumer burning software. Please note that just because your CD information comes up in a computer based multi-media player does not mean that it is a CD Text disk. Computer media players use online CD database information to match up with the CD tags. Check the CD jacket and see if CD text is listed as a feature or the CD author for Text information. Normally it is not an issue with the play, just that the CD does not contain CD text info.
