Hi folks,

something strange happened today. I got an _important_ cd and simply
wanted to copy the data from it. My kernel thinks its empty ("this disc
doesn't ..."). But under Vista I can read the data. Is that some kind of
windows magic? Unfinished disc or stuff or did I encounter a bug?



Possible mulitsession disk that wasn't created properly. I have had that happened in the past. Check to see how much blank space there is. The session may not have been closed properly.


This may be useful.

I agree. It would be nice if there was a default way to test for multi-session disks and their status. Is that kernel or some other application?

Glad I pointed you in the right direction.
