Did you know you can view CD-TEXT and ISRCs using your optical drive? Here's how:

  1. Place a disc written with CD-TEXT or ISRC codes into your optical drive.
  2. Open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app.
  3. To verify CD-TEXT, type drutil cdtext or, to verify the ISRC codes, type drutil subchannel.
  4. If the CD-TEXT and ISRC codes were properly written, you will see it in the output of the drutil command.

For more information, type man -t drutil | open -f -a /Applications/Preview.app in Terminal.app.
