Multisession CD and DVD media?

» close window

The Question is:

How do you do.
I've problems with reading multisession CDs -
OpenVMS sees only first session. This is *not*  problem with CDROM device -
 Tru64 on the same hardware does read multisession disks.
How can I read multisession CDs under OpenVMS?

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS does not provide integrated support for multisession media.
  If you wish to read such volumes, you would have to use the IO$_DIAGNOSE
  interface to transfer the data from the session into (for instance) an
  LD disk partition, or you would have to write a multisession-capable
  device driver.
  If you wish to formally request this support be added into OpenVMS,
  please contact your sales representative or reseller, or the customer
  support center.
