Thanks.  I've figured out (see my other post) that, as you suggest, my
player is, indeed, getting the info over the internet from some CDDB

I actually was not interested in getting the CDTEXT from an existing
commercial CD onto a ripped copy but rather getting it onto CD's burned
from original material of my own or my clients.
