• Accessing "Hidden Track" data on otherwise-audio CDs

    From Phil Reynolds@21:1/5 to All on Fri Aug 9 14:39:08 2019
    I have a combination audio/data CD on which the data is a "Hidden
    Track" - namely in the track 1 pregap. This format was quite common in
    the mid-1990s but support was dropped around 1997.

    I am trying to access the data on such a CD... I have a system running
    Linux, and can copy the CD including the pre-gap to bin/cue files if
    that helps, but have not found any way of accessing the file system yet.

    Does anyone know a way, short of setting up Windows 95 (RTM) on a
    machine, I might be able to retrieve the content?
