Hello,

I have spend this weekend with looking for a software that will
catalogue content of CDs and DVDs (I want to know what file is on which
CD/DVD).

It sounds like a simple thing to set up:

1. MySQL database
2. perl script to read contents of CD/DVD
3. PHP to query the database.

I wrote a simple setup for this 10 years ago,
we still use it with minor modifications.

The database contains 1645 CD/DVD's with 704228
directories with 4830632 files.

What we do is:

1. read the contents of the folders to be burned
into the database. This includes an MD5 sum of each file.
2. Generate iso file
3. Burn
4. Verify (on another computer) the CD with the database.

How do you recognise individual discs? By label? By hash of the entire disc? Some other method? That is the one problem I have not been able to solve in a quick manner.
