is there any software out there that allows you to read exactly what is on a cd, not just the general info that windows explorer or “disc info” in burning programs give you? for instance, i need to know whether a rewritable disc has been quick-erased or full-erased. also, i have had a few discs corrupted by burning programs, so they won’t burn at all. also, i suppose you could use this to read copy protection. i’ve had so much trouble with bad discs and bad burning programs that this would be very useful to me.
norton utilities used to have software like this for floppies and hard drives back in ms-dos days.
