Summary: CD-XRay is a low-level explorer for exploring the innards of CD-DAs, CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs.
CD-XRay is an utility to browse the real contents of CD-DAs, CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs. It can display the sectors in cooked mode (user data only) or in raw mode (headers, user data, error correction codes).
It offers classical navigation functions to display the real contents of data sectors.
It is sector oriented, which is beneficial for such files, where the classical sector size of 512 bytes used by hexadecimal editors doesn't correspond to the way the data is organized.
The user interface is the same as classical hexadecimal editors:
CD-XRay recognizes following data structures, and displays them accordingly:
To access the drives, we use the Aspi layer under Windows 95/98/ME and NT. This layer must be up to date (4.57 or higher).
Under Windows 2000 and XP, we use a service called lsdiorw.exe, which must be installed from an administrator account. See some comments on this service.
To manage disk images (ISO images, and the like), please see File-XRay, low-level file explorer.
