  • Publication number: 20080310295
    Abstract: A method for extra appending data in a multiple layer disc is provided. The capacity of the data zone in the multiple layer disc is fixed, and each layer comprises a plurality of appended sessions. When multiple layer disc is mounted, it is determined whether data is appended in zones following a middle zone. If the data is appended in the zones following the middle zone, a first jump address is obtained from a table of extended contents to serve a start address of appending the data. Data is appended to the multiple layer disc. An end address of appending the data is recorded in the table of extended contents to serve a second jump address for a next appending operation.

  • Patent number: 7420374
    Abstract: This invention provides an electronic device that has a battery with a power storage unit and a display module, a power detector and a display control module. The power storage unit is for storing electrical power and the display module is placed on the surface of the battery. The power detector is selectively coupled to the battery, and generates a remaining power signal after detecting the remaining power in the battery. The remaining power signal is used to control the display control module. When the power detector is selectively coupled to the battery, the display module shows the current remaining power in response to the action of the display control module. When the power detector is separated from the battery, the display module is essentially capable of maintaining the showing of remaining power.
