identifying a unique cd with from another with the same content.
Is this even possible?

I know copy protections systems use subchannel data.etc. for id'ing duplicates but im interested in indexing cds that have been burned normaly with generic names like 'MyDisk' or 'MiscApps'. ie not protected.

An idea i had was using the alphanumeric first file on the cd's creation data,size and filename to create a basic checksum. But im open to ther ideas on that one since i have no idea how reliable that would be on disks with similiar files. Any advise or ideas appreciated .
