I used to do this some 10 - 12 years ago when I purchased my first Dual Speed CD Burner (Remember Those Anyone?).

I never used a program, I used the command line to do a list to a text file. It has been many years since I did that and I do not remember the actual command I used to do.

I will screw around and try to figure it out, if I do, I will post it here.

Ok, the command I would use is this:

dir f: /s >list.txt

This will create a text file named list in the directory you ran the line.

F: is your CD drive (enter the letter that refers to your drive)

/s referswill include all subdirectories

I hope this works for you!


P.S. You can always type dir /? for help information in regards to the dir command.

On Macintosh there is a program called CD Finder, which creates a searchable directory of the contents. I don't know for sure, but I'll bet there is something similar for PCs.
