Load album title, artist name(s) and song title from CD in to VB6 program

10 New Member
I have no code and need a starting point for writing it. First, can it be done? Second, I need an example.
I have many CDs, both commercial and those converted from cassette and vinyl disks, that I am storing information (not the music) in my Music Library program. Typing in the data is time consuming. The CDs list most of the information on the recording - Album name, artist name(s) and song titles. If I could automate storing that information it would save me a lot of work. I can always add the remainder as an update.

Thank you for your comments. I have given up on the search for the answer. I have many vinyl disks - 45, 33 and 78 rpm recordings and cassette tapes - which I converted into compact discs. Those are the ones that I had hoped could be accessed and entered into the input page of my VB6 program. I have resigned myself to typing in all data and not look for short cuts, since they do not appear to exist.

You may still be surprised at what's possible.

There are apps which let you hold up your phone to the the radio, for example, and they'll tell you the name/artist of the song that's playing.

Although probably more effort than it's worth for this, it may be of interest to check out how they work.
