    it can be done....took me about a week to code and now it is one of the features on CobraIII. Works 100% if the cd info is in the local db or in cdplayer.ini

        Currently right now if i recall, it is like 300mb or more. Each month it keeps growing. So far all the CD's that i have checked through with C3 has been in the cddb so i guess it works.

                Hey, why doesn't someone here from Australia (with a decent connection) hook up with hornet. Throw this guy a bone and burn him a CD with the CDDB on it...

                I'd do it, but from Canada, the postage would be a fortune. (Besides, customs might think I'm trying to export some illegal high-encryption steganography tool or something!!!) LOL

                    Sounds pretty cool
                    could you tell my the address of the free db site please- it sounds a cool idea and I want to check it out.

                    Cheers
