InCDius GH is a Java based utility whose purpose is to download disk track and title data from the Internet cddb database (http://www.cddb.com). If you want to be able to see the track names in Audio Strip GH or other Mac CD Player, then this program should speed the process of adding the names. InCDius is free.
What's New
Verison 2.5b2:
  • Minimum is now Mac OS X 10.5 (recommend you use at least 10.5.4)
  • InCDius 2.5 is now a 64-bit universal application, compiled for PowerPC, Intel-32 and Intel-64 architechures. (Note I do not actually have a 64-bit Intel Mac to test this on.)
  • The underlying database engine has been switched from Berkely DB to the Apple included SQLite 3
  • The ability to read the ancient CD Remote Prefs file has been removed as it relied on deprecated Resource Manager calls.
  • QuickTime playback of audio tracks has been removed as being deprecated.
  • Removed use of Internet Config API to retrieve user's email address as being extremely deprecated.
  • All deprecated API calls have been removed: Carbon, Resource Manager, the C API to QuickTime, various messages to standard Cocoa objects, etc.
  • Objective C 2.0 fast enumeration is used throughout where appropriate.
  • A threaded progress dialog has been added to XML export and import, and CD Removal.
  • Moved to NSInteger/NSUInteger throughout as part of 64-bit upgrade.
  • No longer lazy-load data. The entire database is read into memory at launch time. This trades startup time cost for simplicity, and high performance afterwards.
  • Icon colors changed from greenish to a deep blue, now use 512x512 icon.
  • Proper standard search text field with the little magnifying glass icon.
  • Removed custom striped tables for standard Cocoa striping of tables throughout.
  • Moved to modern .xib bundles from .nib bundles.
  • CD Record database key is now a SHA1 hash of the TOC data. (Minimizing chances of a collision, but not eliminating them)
  • The database is now tested against the 15,000 disk collection of one of my users, rather than my own paltry 250 disk collection.
  • Resized the row height of the user info tracks field in the edit window to avoid system warning about being too tall.
  • Moved place where database is stored into (user account)/Libray/Application Support/Generally Helpful Software/InCDius 2.5
Verison 2.5b2:

Much cleaner and faster than any of the other CD catalog apps. Freedb is pretty good as a resource for entering data - not as extensive as MyMusic's CDDB, but much more useable with this app, and much faster, especially for searching. My few complaints - no printable reports that allow for more than title and performer, and revisions to freedb are not supported, even though freedb allows such if apps will support revisions. I am also concerned that InCDius seems to have stalled in development - nothing heard from the author since March 2004.

i tried this software with great anticipation but was disappointed. there were glitches in the genre/my rating area, and then after i quit the program it would not start again. i tried deleting it & downloading it again to no avail. my email to the developer went unanswered. would love for it to work but... any suggestions welcome

Stupendously good, free app that does EXACTLY what I needed: catalog my audio CD collection. I am quite impressed with how well it works and how elegantly it does its work. The creator deserves MANY kudos and thanks for making this available to the world. I would willingly pay for this baby.

CDDB stinks, Gracenote can take a flying leap at a rolling manhole cover. I refuse to support them after they basically stole the work of countless volunteers and started "licensing" access.

Make your program work with freedb, now *that* would be nice.

Great CD database software, and it's FREE. It will import your "CD Programs" info from OS 9 too.
