    Hey all!

    My understanding is that CDDB and FreeDB database queries are done by calculating a hash number from the frame offset of the CD tracks, which is then sent to the servers. If there is a match for that hash number, a track listing is retrieved. Is this correct?... no?...

    Well, anyway! There is this CD compilation with various artist that I'm trying to track down. There is very little information available about it. The title is Eurohits Re-Load, and it was released 2003 or 2004. I recently found what appears to be a "CD ID" or disc ID number which is b80d410e.

    Is it possible to enter this ID on some website or in some software in order to retrieve more information about this CD?

    Thanks!

    P.s. Note that I don't actually own the physical CD. That would really make it easy to ID it.

    Go to http://www.freedb.org/freedb_search.php and enter b80d410e for the search word and select "All" for Search and Categories. The search results should include the "Eurohits Re-Load" CD. Expanding that entry should give you a full track list. Not sure what other information you are looking for.
