Herong's Tutorial Notes on CD/DVD - Version 2.14, by Dr. Herong Yang

"readcd -fulltoc" - DVD Sample

This section provides a sample of TOC (Table Of Content) from a DVD.

The next test I did was on a DVD. I ran the "readcd -fulltoc" command after inserting the CD:

C:\>\local\cdrtools\readcd -fulltoc dev=0,0,0
Read  speed:  5540 kB/s (CD  31x, DVD  4x).
Write speed:  2823 kB/s (CD  16x, DVD  2x).
readcd: Input/Output error. read toc: scsi sendcmd: no error
CDB:  43 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 04 00

Sense Bytes: 70 00 05 00 00 00 00 10 43 00 00 08 30 02 00 00 00 00
Sense Key: 0x5 Illegal Request, Segment 0
Sense Code: 0x30 Qual 0x02 (cannot read medium - incompatible format)
   Fru 0x0
Sense flags: Blk 0 (not valid)
cmd finished after 0.002s timeout 40s
readcd: Cannot read TOC header

So there is no TOC in the "lead-in" are on this DVD.
