If the album name and artist have been written correctly to the CD, then these should appear in WMP. Have you tried letting WMPCDText re-read the CD-Text? Or does restarting WMP help?
If you use CDex to read the CD-Text, does that show the album name and artist?It seems that CDBurnerXP isn't capable of writing genre to CD-Text. The only way I know of to do this, is to use CDRDAO and a self-written TOC file.
... and I am not able to see the "Read CD-Text" option on the context menu when right-click on a CD track in WMP's Now Playing mode while my CD is playing. I am using Windows Media Player 12.0.7601.17514 with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and WMPCDText 1.4. (I also tried this on my work computer with a slightly older build of WMP 12 with Windows 7 Professional (no SP) and WMPCDText 1.4).
Please check if WMPCDText is loaded in WMP - it should be listed in WMP's Tools - Plug-ins menu, and should have a checkmark next to it (press Ctrl+M if you don't see the Tools menu).
Also, are you sure that it's an actual audio CD (and not, for example, a data CD containing MP3 files)?
Are you using the English version of WMP on both computers, or is it in another language?
In that case, the missing "Read CD-Text" option looks like a bug in WMPCDText. I can't reproduce it on any of my systems, so is it OK if I send you a special debug version of WMPCDText for you to try? If so, I'll PM you the download link and instructions tomorrow. Or if you prefer e-mail, PM me your e-mail address first. Thanks!
For what it's worth, you should also get the Read CD-Text option in Library mode when right-clicking a CD track in the Play pane (on the right).
Now, does re-reading the CD-Text help to get the album name and artist to appear?
I don't see that option when in Library mode with the CD selected in the left pane and right-clicking a CD track in the Play pane.
Just to be sure, are you really right-clicking in the Play pane (and not in the centered Library pane)?

Does the problem occur with a single CD, or with all CDs that you try? Are you sure that the affected CD/CDs do in fact contain CD-Text?
Also, can you please check if CDex and Exact Audio Copy are able to read CD-Text from the same CDs? Since WMPCDText uses roughly the same method as these two applications, that would be interesting info. Thanks!
