(null null null)...Sometimes the cd i rip has no hidden information so the playlist indicates null or nothing to appear. These are primarily from cds i purchased here in Monterrey. Such as a five cd collection of 100 favorites released on a Mexican lable. I would not say they are pirate disks but probably purchased in bulk from a reputable manufacturer in USA. Many European lables too are purchased in bulk and released elsewhere with phony names of orchestras. Sometimes these cds have no coded information and aĺso appear as..nullification or nothing there. Collections that have many lost or forgotten selections we might not have ever heard again.

We provide the above from the beautiful community of San Pedro Garza Garcia in the metropolitan area of Monterrey, Mexico. You will find a link on the CONTENTS page to see more of our city.
