comparing the contents of entire CDs


Can K3B (or some other app) compare CDs to see if they are identical in content?

Or cat or dd or whatever a mounted cd and pipe it to md5sum. For example: dd if=/dev/dvd | md5sum

I believe ISOs would be ok, as long as the CD only has one track. For instance, some CDs have a data track, and music tracks. I think an ISO would only capture the data track.

Capturing the disc with dd, as makuyl said, I think, would be your best option. dd should capture all tracks and data within.
