In Response To: Re: Transferring memo text (Colby Boles)
I ran across this this morning -- I hope it will help. I don't have a 450 either so can not to any testing --- It gives the command strings for the 20 character titles.
The info came from http://www.undeadscientist.com/slinkcmds.html
Query Disc Memo
Note: The first players with a memory for memo description for each disc stored only 13
bytes. This is returned as a 0x40.
More recent changers (e.g. CDP-CX450) have memory for a 20 byte memo description
for each disc. To maintain backwards complatability the first 13 bytes are returned in a
0x40, the next 7 bytes of the name will be returned as a 0x80 response.
See also command 0x48.
Query Enhanced Memo
Note: On older decks this is treated in the same way as the command 0x40.
On the newer decks gets back data as 0x48 and 0x49 rather than 0x40 and 0x80
responses. Also if the disc has CDText AND the disc is currently loaded, the full CDText
is returned by the 0x48 and 0x49 messages. If not, only the memo stored in the player's
memory is returned (on my CDP-CX450 this is 20 bytes).
