Dump/mirror of InstantInfo's cdr-forum.de database?

Any idea if there’s a way to find the CD-R and DVD±R media info that used to be on cdr-forum.de?

The Web Archive mirrored the static pages, but the core part is actually not archived because you had to go through a search form.

BTW: It’s been a while since I visited here. The transition away from CDFreaks wasn’t positive, and now it’s even worse. :frowning:

I just see this thread from google search.
I did code a tool to get data from “wayback machine” then I merge them into excel file.
but there are about 150 discs missing, some brand name and the photo of discs.

Thanks!
How did you figure out the base disc info URLs?

Many disc photos are still available:
http://web.archive.org/web//http://cdr-forum.de/rohlinge/cover/

Maybe the site owner could be asked for the complete data somehow. Old Whois data has a still operational email address? Or another way to track their current contact info.

And the file without requiring forum login:

To get all IDs, you have to go through brand name or the seller.This is what the web designed for.

so, the first step is to get all IDs of brand name or seller.

then use the ID as a parameter to php.
then you can get all disc IDs a under brand name or seller.

once you have all disc ID and disc type then you can call another php to get the detail info of the disc.

and it looks like there are lots of missing information on the web site, so you have to switch website using
