Is there a way/tool to determine the date and time when an audio disc (CD) has been written/burned?

I am aware of How to find out when a disc (DVD) has been written/burned? but the accepted solution doesn't work with audio discs as the latter don't have a file system:

What format are audio CD files in? An explanation of the CDA and CD-DA format

The audio CD format is typically referred to as a CDA file (.cda). In truth there are no such things as CDA files as they are just created by the operating system to show representations of the audio tracks on a CD.

Hence:

instead of

if there were some file system.

So, any idea how to find out when an audio disc (CD) has been written/burned?


In reply to user Ramhound's comment, having no file system doesn't prevent CDA from having metadata. See Compact Disc subcode.

  • If there is no file system the. What you want isn't possible since there isn't a way to store it – Ramhound Apr 5 '14 at 4:23
