Hi everybody,

Today I checked out my copy of LLL's "Secret Weapons over Normandy", which - luckily - still sounds excellent, however for some reason I'm not able to access the data-section on Disc 2. I tried it on 2 different PCs with 4 different drives (including 2 superb Plextors) but I just do not see any data-section at all. confused

And now that I think about it, I can't even remember if I ever checked out this section before.
I think I did, but I'm just not sure if I'm just imagining things after all this time.

So my questions are:
* Has there indeed been a data section on the 2nd CD?
* If so, does anybody else right now have problems accessing it?
* Are new PCs in general unable to read the data sections of Hybrid-CDs?
* Might there have been charge of this CD without data-section?

Would be great if anybody could help me out there!

P.S.: Luckily the sound is all there, so it's actually a minor issue, but still I'd like to figure out what's actually going on there! wink

Hi, it's a great score! I love it. I'm very fond of the themes in this one.
I can access the bonus content without any problem. My PC's fairly recent, running with Windows 7.

The bonus content on disc 2 consists of five short videos.
A text file presents the bonus content :

Simonec says

Danger: Nemesis

I can't find the fifth one on YouTube.
It's a 5'30" clip, with a short Giacchino interview in the beginning and then it's the main theme played over footage of the recording sessions.

Here's another video that is very similar, but doesn't feature the Giacchino interview part :
