4 CD DVD BD Inspector Software
Professional software for intensive analysis
and extraction of data from CD-R, CD-RW
and all types of DVD media - including
HD DVD and Blu-Ray.. Tailored for professionals
in data recovery, forensics, and law enforcement.
Building on the data recovery technology
in CD/DVD Diagnostic™, it adds detailed
displays and enhanced media search abilities,
improving performance and usability.
CD/DVD Inspector reads all major CD and
DVD filesystem formats including ISO-9660,
Joliet, UDF, HSG, HFS and HFS+. When the
disc being examined contains more than
a single filesystem, all filesystems found
are displayed. Multiple filesystems are
present for hybrid Macintosh/PC discs
as well as for discs that are produced
by DirectCD and other packet-writing software.
DVD Video discs include both the UDF and
ISO-9660 filesystem as well.
CD/DVD Inspector now includes a flexible
report generator which can be tailored
to your specific requirements. Over 50
separate data items can be selected for
reports with output in direct to print,
HTML, text file or CSV. With printed and
HTML reports thumbnails can be included
for pictures. Reports can be sorted by
any data item included in the report.
- Flexible Report Generator
Reports can be produced for print, HTML,
text file or CSV output with over 50
different data items selectable. An
unlimited number of user-defined reports
can be created.
- Automated Media Collection
Put up to 630 discs at once in one of
the supported Robotic Loader systems
and it will automatically collect all
content from every disc. Flexible reporting
for each disc processed. Import the
results directly into EnCase or FTK.
Optionally photograph each disc as it
- Complete CD Imaging
Now CD/DVD Inspector can create an image
file containing all of the information
required to completely process any disc
in a set of two files. The first file
contains the complete "raw"
track data with all subchannels from
a CD and all of the user sector data
from all sessions on a DVD. The second
file is in XML format and contains all
of the information that CD/DVD Inspector
has extracted from the various control
structures on the disc and the file
- Transfer data collected to
EnCase, FTK, etc.
- Captures all files, even those
not part of the directory structure
(deleted or damaged)
- One-step image collection from
otherwise inaccessible CD or DVD
- Use of 'hard links" minimizes
size of the image file while retaining
complete content of the disc.
- Drag-and-drop a single file per
- File scanning
“Inaccessible” discs files
can be searched using scan specification
syntax, including regular expressions.
- Built-in Image Viewer
- This tool identifies files containing
graphic content (ART, BMP, GIF,
JPEG, TIFF, etc.) independent of
the file extension.
- Supports RAW images from over
125 different digital cameras.
- Low-level sector examination
Displays sectors in hexadecimal and
character. It also scans all sectors
of a disc for particular data For example,
it locates an email address on a disc
regardless of what file the mail may
be in. This searches the complete disc,
not just areas identified as belonging
- Data pane
Allows direct examination of the contents
of files on the disc from the main window.
The information can be displayed in
either character or hexadecimal/character
form. The data pane can be resized and
scrolled as needed.
- Disc Memory and Checkpoint
This feature eliminates lengthy re-discovery
of the disc’s contents. Additionally,
it allows for interruption of a disc
examination and then resumption of that
same examination at a later time. This
is useful as some disc examinations
can be lengthy, often taking more than
- Intensive Disc Examination
Locates data on discs that has been
dropped from the file system, either
because of software glitches, deletion
or user action. This is now done for
all format discs.
- Expanded Retry Capabilities
Permits users to select the level of
automatic retries performed whenever
a data error is encountered. This can
make otherwise unreadable data sectors
readable again. This allows the user
to balance examination speed with thoroughness.
- CD Text, ISRC and RID Audio

and artist names on Sony and home-produced
- ISRC is the acronym for International
Standard Recording Code. It is a
code used to identify the recording
studio and publisher of a music
