Hi all,

can we read the cd files via a java programme. I would like to know if there is way we can read the CD-rom file.

Thank you in advance.

Are you using the File API? Did you try it out? What have you got so far?

Use java.io package. especially(File,FileReader/InputStream,FileWriter/OutputStrea, BufferedReader/InputStream and BufferedWriter/OutpurStream)

It has all the classes required to read/write to any stream.


SCJP 6,SCWCD 5,SCBCD 5

Failure is not an option.

Since this has turned out to be a file i/o question, I will move this to the relevant forum.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
