Any use for Mode 0?

Well, try as I might, I can't think of any good reason for this to exist, except maybe a test. For what, I'm not sure.

Isn’t mode 0 just for audio??? Not sure anymore, have to dig in my literature again!

When you view the ccd file of an audio cd and a data cd, the last entries which describe the tracks in the image, always have a mode specified. Mode0 for audio, mode1 for data.

Nope.

Mode 0 is just sync, etc., and then User Data, except filled completely with 0’s.
