Most CD's have nothing but audio stored on them. A small few have something called CD Text, but these are few and far between. The pro nav names the CD's using a third party database called GraceNote (

I'm not 100% sure(asked in another thread) but I think the database is held locally on the HDD in the car. If this is the case, new CD's will not pick up their names unless the database is updated. Presumably the database either updates itself via GPRS or an update comes from BMW bundled in with their software updates. If anyone knows how this works please let us know!
