Well, I don't know of any way that I can calculate the DISCID of an Audio CD using just RunRev. The disc ID is a 8-digit hexadecimal (base-16) number, computed using data from a CD's Table-of-Contents (TOC) in MSF (Minute Second Frame) form. I can't find any support for accessing redbook CDs anywhere in RunRev.
I'm not saying it's not possible, just that I can't find a way to do it.
