Ultimately what I am trying to do is inventory our CD/DVD archive in a mySQL database. I'm pretty sure I can handle the DB part if someone can help me with generating a text file containg the names of files and directories on the CD/DVD.

For instance, we archive our work sort of like this:

Archive Date, #? - DVD
  |_12345 company 'description'
  |     |_Directory_01
  |     |     |_file_01.txt
  |     |     |_file_02.txt
  |     |_Directory_02
  |     |     |_file_01.txt
  |     |_Directory_03
  |     |     |_file_01.txt
  |     |_Directory_04
  |           |_file_01.txt
  |_12346 company 'description'
  |     |_Directory_01
  |     |     |_file_01.txt
  |     |     |_file_02.txt
  |     |_Directory_02
  |     |     |_file_01.txt
  |     |_Directory_03
  |     |     |_file_01.txt
  |     |_Directory_04
  |          |_file_01.txt
  |_12347 company 'description'

...etc...

  So, after a staff member burns an archive, they can just drag the CD/DVD icon onto another icon on the desktop and launch the utility. The utility will log the disc's contents and either INSERT the data into the mySQL database or somehow POST the data to a web-based form.

Any ideas?
