amongst some of the guys where I work. Without saying which side of
the speculation I favor, here are the conflicting claims:
Claim A: Using only software, a computer forensic specialist could
examine a CD or DVD that was burned with a particular burner drive and
prove that the disc was recorded using the drive.
Claim B: The drive could be identified using software only if another
sample disc burned with the drive were available for comparison.
Claim C: The only way a disc could be identified conclusively as having
been created / recorded / burned by a drive is if the disc is
physically examined under a microscope for "laser shape and tracking
Claim D: There is no way to definitively associate a disc with the
drive that burned it. The hardware is just too generic so the best
anyone could achieve would be a strong "maybe."
I'd be glad to have opinions but facts would be even better.
