I've been searching and reading information on how a cd-rw drive uses the pregroove wobble as a guide to write to a disc.
Most of what I found is patents, there is a little info on wikipedia, but I still do not know certain things.
The reason why I need some help is because I want to burn data to a disc, and capture this wobble signal and any data associated with it.
But I have no idea of how to do this, would a Analogue to Digital converter do the trick?
Ok first of all the optical read head reads the wobble and then seperates it into 2 parts, one is used as a syncronyzation clock, and the other part is fed into a Phase-Lock-circuit (pll), which then converts it into something else, which is then sent to somewhere else?!?
Ok can someone give me a good description of how exactly the wobble is decoded and sent from and to the optical read head.
And is it possible to record the wobble, use it as a fake wobble. I.e use the wobble that I recorded to my pc, instead of the wobble coming off the disc?
