Read CD digital audio and video data via the SCSI bus

tosha reads CD-DA digital audio and CD-XA digital video tracks and writes them to the hard disk. Several audio formats are supported raw PCM little-endian and big-endian byte order, WAV / RIFF, AIFF and Sun AU.

You can also pipe the data directly into an audio or video player. A simple audio player is included “pcmplay”. To playback VideoCD data, you need a third-party product, for example MpegTV see http//

tosha reads the digital audio / video data through the SCSI bus; therefore it does not work with IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM drives nor with proprietary interfaces.
