Where to find DVD+RW ADIP data block specification?



Hi all,

Does anyone know where I can find the “DVD+R/RW Basic Format Specification”?
I’m using the MMC-4 (Multi Media Control Set, draft 4) from t10.org. I can read in the ADIP information using format code 0x11h, but I can’t seem to find the spec to what the return data (an array of 256 bytes) means.

It seems odd that MMC-4 has detail description on CD-RW’s ATIP data block, DVD-RW’s pre-recorded information in lead-in, but there’s nothing on ADIP. It just points you to look at “DVD+R/RW Basic Format Specification” which is no where to be found.



Hi Ray,

t10.org is for software interfaces, for disc specifications you should go to
www.ecma-international.org. For DVD+RW, get ECMA-337. You can check
that your interpretation of the bytes is correct with dvdidentifier.cdfreaks.com.



Thanks for the help! That’s exactly what I was looking for.
