Q: How do you recognize discs (CD's, DVD's, ...) which still have an open session. Sometimes I'm trying to read a disc, and he says no info is on it. If you look at the disc itself, you see that half of the content surface is different from the rest (so you know something has been written to it). In that case, I would like to know whether or not the disc is still "open", or the disc has failed burning.

Is there a way to do this, other than try the disc on at least the computer it would have been burned with, and one it did not (knowing that both computers are different: different burners, different burner software).

I think we may be confused a bit.

If you see some "burned" areas that only suggests that something did or tried to write to the disk.

A UDF disk would be readable on a system that has the same udf driver.

Where did you get the disk from?

Discs in question come from one of the computers that I have or had. Since I cannot read the disc, it's hard to tell how and what. I did use UDF sometimes, but most will not be UDF. One thing I am sure of, is that I cannot use them to start a new burning session.
