CDTV Burn-In #2 Test CD-ROM Remastered

I was one of the original authors and creators of the Commodore CDTV Burn-In #2 test CD-ROM (Orange Label) that was used for production testing in Japan while I was briefly working for Commodore. I recently found my original master CD and will be providing RE-MASTERED copies with a unique LightScribe label via my website and on eBay.

Only 2,000 original copies of this version test CD were ever produced and I had sold a small number of the original CDs on eBay several years ago. This CD-ROM was used to continuously cycle the machines through a predetermined set of tests while the machines were "burned in" after assembly. Additional tests, pictures, utilities, sound tracks, etc. are also included on the disc. Unfortunately I do not have any documentation for this disc.

If I remember correctly there were actually three different version Burn-In test CDs made for the CDTV. They were each color coded for easy identification with either red, orange or purple labels.

By the way, I'm still providing downloadable copies of my C64 Programmer's Library for anyone interested. It's also available from my website and on eBay.
