    Get track information from an audio cd

    Hi, I want to read track information (track length, number of tracks) from an audio cd in a .NET web application. Is this even possible? Any suggestions? Any information in the cda-files? Someone mentioned ActiveX-objects.

    Thanks, but I was wondering about cda-files (those small 44 bytes files). Or alternatively how to use activeX-objects to read all the cd-information. And I need to do this through a web page.

    That makes it tricky. I suppose you have to use ActiveX objects for that, as you have already said. However, you must remember that Active X can be run only in Internet Explorer, in addition a security warning will be shown to a user. I believe you can also use Java applets that is supported by all clients platforms. Anyway, I'm afraid that .NET cannot be used here . ActiveX Object are written with native code, Java applets with Java. Maybe Silverlight 1.1 has anything to do with it, however it should be granted to access outside of its pool.

    I think I must try to do it with Silverlight.

    Is this CD on the server or on the client machine? It will be real, real tricky to access the CD drive on the client . . .
