Re: CD/DVD Verify

I *believe* what a lot of verification processes do (like checking the
CD/DVD when you install various Linux flavors) is it actually holds

OK, that would imply that I do need to mount the burned media and compare
the individual contents.

Or maybe you could compute the checksum on the ISO and then compare it
to the CD?

I get media errors trying to simply access the device.

  # md5sum -b /dev/cdrom

  hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
  hdc: command error: error=0x50 { LastFailedSense=0x05 }
  ide: failed opcode was: unknown
  end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 1760
  printk: 12 messages suppressed.
  Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 220

  <this then repeats for section 1768, block 221, 1776/222 and so on>

Any ideas ?

Have you tried a known good disc and see if you get the same type of errors?
