Actually, this isn't true.  Most CDs do not have a unique ID.  CDDB
relies on a "fingerprint" generated from the number of tracks on the

Yes, you're right. I was trying to keep it REALLY simple. Unique ID is much easier to get than explaining the whole layout of the disc thingy.

Just say "computed hash". Well, then again, maybe that confuses the issue, too...
