Try using the patched B20.1 DLL in
Then, on the command line:
mount -b //./X: /dev/cdrom
where X is the drive letter of your CD-ROM drive. Then, for example,
od -c /dev/cdrom | less
or, to read the first sector and write it into a file:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cdrom.sektor0 bs=2048 count=1
The patch will be part of the upcoming B21 release.
Note: This extension will only work on NT, because 9X doesn't support
Hope, this helps,
