    I burned a group of files to a CD then ran fciv to compute the md5 hashes for
    the original files on the hard disk and for the files on the CD. All were
    different. If I copy the files from the CD back to the hard disk and run
    fciv on them, the md5 hashes are identical. Anyone know why fciv computes
    different MD5 hashes for files on CD media?
