Professional software for intensive analysis and extraction of data from CD-R, CD-RW and all types of DVD media - including HD DVD and Blu-Ray..  Tailored for professionals in data recovery, forensics, and law enforcement.  Building on the data recovery technology in CD/DVD Diagnostic™, it adds detailed displays and enhanced media search abilities, improving performance and usability.  With the release of the 5.0 version, this is now the forensic tool you should be using.  For information about the changes in each version see the release information page.

CD/DVD Inspector reads all major CD and DVD filesystem formats including ISO-9660, Joliet, UDF, HSG, HFS and HFS+.  When the disc being examined contains more than a single filesystem, all filesystems found are displayed.  Multiple filesystems are present for hybrid Macintosh/PC discs as well as for discs that are produced by DirectCD and other packet-writing software.  DVD Video discs include both the UDF and ISO-9660 filesystem as well.

CD/DVD Inspector now includes a flexible report generator which can be tailored to your specific requirements.  Over 50 separate data items can be selected for reports with output in direct to print, HTML, text file or CSV.  With printed and HTML reports thumbnails can be included for pictures.  Reports can be sorted by any data item included in the report.

Also available - Robotic Loader Extension.  This is the tool to automate your handling of the massive quantities of CD and DVD evidence that is being collected.  Includes support for photographing and tracking discs!  InfinaDyne supports a variety of hardware for automated collection of CD and DVD evidence.  In general, robotic systems are sold as complete turnkey systems of both hardware and software.


Flexible Report Generator

Reports can be produced for print, HTML, text file or CSV output with over 50 different data items selectable.  An unlimited number of user-defined reports can be created.  Additionally, version 5.0 adds a "timeline" report showing every timestamp on the disc.

Automated Media Collection

Put up to 300 discs at once in one of the supported Robotic Loader systems and it will automatically collect all content from every disc.  Flexible reporting for each disc processed.  Import the results directly into EnCase or FTK.  Optionally photograph each disc as it is processed.

Complete CD Imaging

Discs can be automatically collected to an image file in either ISO+CUE format or an InfinaDyne format.  The ISO+CUE format works for all DVD-type (DVD+, DVD-, BD, BD-R, BD-RE) discs and CDs containing only data (no audio or video) whereas the InfinaDyne format works for all discs.

Transfer data collected to EnCase, FTK, etc.

File scanning

“Inaccessible” discs files can be searched using scan specification syntax, including regular expressions.

Built-in Image Viewer

Low-level sector examination and scanning

Displays sectors in hexadecimal and character. It  also scans all sectors of a disc for particular data   For example, it  locates an email address on a disc regardless of what file the mail  may be in.  This searches the complete disc, not just areas identified as belonging to files.

Data pane

Allows direct examination of the contents of files on the disc from the main window.  The information can be displayed in either character or hexadecimal/character form.  The data pane can be resized and scrolled as needed.

Disc Memory and Checkpoint

This feature eliminates lengthy re-discovery of the disc’s contents.  Additionally, it allows for interruption of a disc examination and then resumption of that same examination at a later time.  This is useful as some disc examinations can be lengthy, often taking more than 12 hours.

Intensive Disc Examination

Locates data on discs that has been dropped from the file system, either because of software glitches, deletion or user action.  This is now done for all format discs.

Expanded Retry Capabilities

Permits users to select the level of automatic retries performed whenever a data error is encountered.  This can make otherwise unreadable data sectors readable again.  This allows the user to balance examination speed with thoroughness.

CD Text, ISRC and RID Audio Disc Display.
