    I found how to do it..
    But have another problem that maybe you can help me with.
    I need to send the "disc id", how can I know the disc id?
    And I need to send "Frame offset of the starting location of each track.", is this the starting point in seconds of each track?

    Have a look at freedb.org they give example code.

    Thank you, I will skip on the DiscID, I found it's not that important and may work without.
    So for a start...I'll just need to know what the hell is "Frame Offset"?
    How do I retrive it from lets say...winamp for a file?

    It is all part and one of the same, Disc ID plus all the track offsets are needed that is what identifies a CD disc.

    Well I may have a way to find the DiscID, but I have no clue what is the frame offset...?
