This involves modifying a single simple text file and sending it back to us.
You will be credited for your work, of course.

A better CDizz release

After several preview releases, we're about to replace the older version of CDizz which was published in our site as a "Stable Version" with the new 0.9856 version which is far better and faster than the old version.

This means that update notices will appear for all CDizz users. We plan on improving the update notification system in later versions so it won't nag too much to users who wish to stay with their older version a little longer.

New Version of CDizz Player

A preview of CDizz player v0.98 build 25 is now available for download from the CDizz download page.

Here are the changes from the previous version:
CDizz now supports multiple interface languages. Currently available languages are: English, Hebrew.
Most world languages can now be assigned to individual CD or Candizz
Window size is no longer limited to 800x600, but can be freely adjusted to match any screen size
Added an option for the player to "forget" user indentification each time the program is run, for extra privacy.
This limits some functions such as CD Collection, Authoring etc.
Hovering over the "open/close Candizz" button will rotate the buttons. Useful for cases where there are too many buttons to fix the screen.
Added right-to-left language support to relevant Candizz
Improved performance and response time
Full screen mode no longer changes the screen resolution
Added an option to update CD details
Please feel free to download and try the software. We appreciate any comment, bug report, review etc.

Foresee the Past

The need for good marketing is essential if you just released a new product and you want sales fast. But good marketing costs money, and if your profit margins are low, it becomes something to consider.
When record companies release a new album, they are never sure if it's going to be a hit. It might just sell a low amount of units and end its shelf life sooner than expected.
If you invest X dollars in marketing a CD it might increase your sales, but is it worth the expense? It's hard to tell, but most marketing and sales professionals will agree that when the right marketing tools are used, it's definitely worth it.

One unknown factor when considering a marketing plan is the scale of future sales. This, however, is not a problem when you consider a new marketing plan for an existing product that is already being sold for the past months or even years. If you are selling a constant amount of a CD title every month, it might be a good idea to increase your monthly income by increasing the attractiveness of your product.

CDizz can add multimedia to new or existing CD titles. If you once released a successful CD and millions bought it 10 years ago, it still makes sense to get people to go to their home CD collection are remember why they liked that CD so much. There is a good chance that they will now look for other releases by the same band, especially if they get photos, karaoke or chords for the new CD as well.

Give and you shall receive.
