This line(cd=new CD[putCount() + 1];) does not helps because everytime I go for adding a data to the object array then perhaps a new chunk of memory gets allocated and the data added previously gets lost

example : when i add to the ist object its O.K

Current number of CDs in the CD database is 0
1:Enter a CD detail
2:Print all the CD details
3:Quit
Enter your choice : 1
Title :a
Artist :a
Type :a
Tracks1
Details added, Press enter to continue

There are 1 number of CD details in the database at present
Title : a
Artist : a
Type : a
Tracks 1

Press enter to continue

1:Enter a CD detail
2:Print all the CD details
3:Quit
Enter your choice : 1
Title :a
Artist :a
Type :a
Tracks1
Details added, Press enter to continue

There are 1 number of CD details in the database at present
Title : a
Artist : a
Type : a
Tracks 1

Press enter to continue

Current number of CDs in the CD database is 1
1:Enter a CD detail
2:Print all the CD details
3:Quit
Enter your choice : 1
Title :b
Artist :b
Type :b
Tracks2
Details added, Press enter to continue

There are 2 number of CD details in the database at present
**Title :
Artist :
Type :
Tracks 0** //ITS NOT DISPLAYING THAT WAS ADDED JUST BEFORE

Title : b
Artist : b
Type : b
Tracks 2

Press enter to continue

If its painful to look at it can somebody show me some example how to dynamically add to an object array ( I am just trying to do with new operator first ) and I have not tried linked list if I am successful I will go ahead and use linked list also.

Regardless of anything else, the whole thing breaks the first time you hit line 84 as far as I can tell.

What's st[0]? Is st an array? If so, you never set aside any memory for it, or at least not soon enough.

>> This line(cd=new CD[putCount() + 1])...

Does it ever even get this far? I guess it does from your printout.

OK, I guess I see why it "worked" now. This is some strange looking code.

Line 45 - If you have this break statement, why bother having a loop?

If you are going to have an array, allocate storage for it on line 78, not line 30.

Line 31 - Where'd the 100 come from? What's that?

I don't think you should have a variable called count in your CD class. Your class is called "CD", as in a single CD. Handle CD COLLECTIONS elsewhere.
