This article describes how to move user-defined Artist, Track, and Titlelistings in Microsoft CD Player from one computer to another.
The Artist, Track, and Title settings are stored in the Cdplayer.ini filein the Windows folder. You can transfer the settings to another computerby copying the Cdplayer.ini file to the other computer. To do so, eithercopy the Cdplayer.ini file from the Windows folder to a floppy disk andthen copy it to the Windows folder on the other computer, or if thecomputers are connected to a network, use the network to copy the filefrom the Windows folder on one computer to the Windows folder on theother computer.

NOTE: If there is already a Cdplayer.ini file in the Windows folder onthe second computer, you must rename it before you copy the file from thefirst computer or you will overwrite the existing file. You can merge thecontents of two Cdplayer.ini files using the Copy and Paste commands in atext editor (such as Notepad).
