Artists List on a Various Artist CUE file
I am a novice at CUE files and I know it is a little early in the year, but I have an SACD recording of GRP Christmas Music (Jazz/Folk) with the following CUE file for burning the recording:
It has "Various" listed for PERFORMER, I have REM'ed out the PERFORMER in Windows NOTEPAD. But when I burn the disc with NERO 9 it leaves the disc info for performer blank. If I remove the REM before the line PERFORMER it installs "Various".
Is there a way I can get it to burn in the performer for each individual piece on the play-back screen (I use an OPPO BDP-83) when it replays the tracks?

Are you meaning that it burns CD-TEXT to specify Album Artist (which I'd have thought would correctly be Various) and Album Title and you want to include also track artists with the track title.

This link may help you if the Nero forums play nice with your web browser (obtained by googling CD Text Track Artist - use Google's cached version if the Nero forums get antsy)

You might need to append the artist to the track title (e.g. TITLE "Little Drummer Boy - Daryl Stuermer") and save that as the title to ensure the artist name shows up. CUE sheets and CD-TEXT don't necessarily use the same information.
