How to extract a CD+G disc in PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT
extracting a disc, we recommend using “one folder per disc” guideline
to store the song files. Such
folders can be identified easily with the discs, and when in trouble, can also
be replaced easily. For example, we use D:\Karaoke (if you have only a single
partition, use C:\Karaoke) folder as the starting point and make sub-folders
CDG001, CDG002, CDG003, etc. for each CD+G discs.
Start the PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT program.
Insert the CD+G disc into the disc drive of your laptop or PC. Close any
pop-up windows such as Window Media player shown below.
Click on the disc drive
(in Folder Menu) and wait for the track information to be displayed on the
right (in File Browser).
Note that the title and artist information for each track has
already been added automatically from the online Internet database. Be sure to
have your laptop or PC connected to Internet to use this feature of adding
title and artist automatically from the online Internet database.
Now you have the options to play the songs (tracks) directly from the disc
or first extract them into the hard drive and then play from the files. Here we will show you how to extract the
songs (tracks) into the hard drive.
Click on the check mark at the bottom to select all songs,
and press the Encode button also at the bottom.
A pop-up window Disc Capture will appear. Select a folder into which the extracted
song files will be stored. In the
picture below, we have chosen D:\Karaoke\CDG001. You can also choose to name the target
folder automatically using the date, artist name, or album title. Next select File Naming method for the
extracted files using the Album, Artist, Track, and Title. Be sure to name them
such that the files will not share a same name, in which case the files with
same names will be overwritten. You can simply choose the Advanced option in
which the extracted files will be named Track 01, Track 02, etc. Next choose the Bitrate and Speed of the
extraction. Be sure to place a
check mark on CD+G option for any karaoke CD+G discs. Press OK.
The encoding/extracting will begin showing progress on each song. It is
important that the disc is clean and without scratches which will hinder the
extraction process. For problems in
extracting certain discs or certain tracks, please contact email@example.com.
