Thanks for the tips!

Actually in DDP Creator it says that my track 2 has a non ISO 8859-1 character in the CD text field...

but if i check my session in pyramix it's written ISO 8859-1...

Very strange....

i might have found where is the problem from.... it's actually this character '
i put a lot of space so you can see it, if you have a macbook pro, it's under the number 4

for example if one of my track title is called: L'ame délaissée everything which will be from the ' will be deleted, so for example only the L will stay...

i will try another export withtout

Basically, you need to be very careful with text that is copy/pasted from any source that isn't plain vanilla ISO text. If you can live with it's limitations, ISO-646 is the 'safest' character set.

I use the ISO-8859/1 character set all the time. Problems exist with poor CD-Text implementation by automobile/marine players, some CD-players and even J-River's MediaCenter. A recent example is track titles in the Cree language: As well as obliterating characters like the circumflex, a 2005 Toyota Matrix also made all characters in to upper-case, which is a strict no-no in Cree.

CD-Text is getting rather long-in-the-tooth...

My biggest headaches come from cd+text that comes from a Microsoft word document. Characters like the dash - , Apostrophe ' and several other characters are not from the standard ISO-646 or the Latin (Western European)8859-1 character set and cause untold problems with CD+Text.
Next try dealing with 8859-2 Czech and Hungarian diacritics.
It would be nice if the validate name function caught these things......
All the best,
