The short question I have, do you know of any code example on reading the FAT/TOC table directly on the DVD?
My theory is that you can read disk that has some damage, by implanting a new TOC into the drive controller. (I assume the FAT is kept in drive memory, not on the PC?) or by bypassing it, since most Movies keep the data at roughly the same points.
Read a FAT Table. (just because I’ve always wanted to learn more about them)
See if I could read a disk without using it.
See if I could swap the FAT table, with a different (good) on.
While I know a fair bit about coding, and interacting with hardware. I don’t know allot about drive controllers, and was hoping someone here could point me to an example, or a nudge in the right direction.
