Cmd-line application for reading ATIP-information?

vbimport

#1

I have a need for an application that read the media ATIP information, to get hold of dye-type, manufacturer etc. Is there such an application available? Preferably command-line or a GUI app that can be set to export so that the data can be imported into another application.

CDRECORD can do it, though the output is a little cluttered

hmm… seems like there’s no compiled version available for win32?

EDIT
Very bad homepage and overcomplex documentation :wink:

Anyhow, precompiled win32 versions available here:
ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/win32

Documentation here:

cdrecord -help is the only working cmd-line for .exe help.

EDIT#2
This aplpication cannot use windows internal ASPI-replacement, so it seems you have to have a third-party ASPI driver installed, like Adaptec’s ASPI or similar :confused:

Any suggestions on other applications?
