I have been looking for a CD/DVD app for several years now. I am looking for something that can display a picture of a disc and indicate what part of it a specified file is located at.
One program that is close is CD-DVD Speedâ€™s scan-disk function. It shows the sector map and if you click a file in the list, it highlights it in the map. Of course itâ€™s a rectangular, linear map which does not correspond to physical location on the disc:
dvd-lab has apparently implemented a version of what I am looking for with their DVD Data Topology feature:
Iâ€™m hoping to find one that can read a discâ€™s TOC (CD or DVD) and let you select one or more files and display where on the disc they would be located (obviously a disc can be rotated, but it at least shows you the range as distance from the hub). It would be even better if it could read a directory and show you where the files would (like dvd-labâ€™s function).
Has anyone seen anything like this? I know Iâ€™m asking for something unusual, so I accept that I may as usual end up having to write it myself, but I would of course need some info on the calculations needed.
Thanks a lot.
