Publication data is optically recorded in at least one section (a second section) of the sections other than the first section in accordance with the CD-ROM logical format. A CD-ROM utilization tool that utilizes publication data in the CD-ROM logical format and a CD-ROM emulator for converting a request for access to the CD-ROM logical section issued by the CD-ROM utilization tool to a request for access to the optical disk are recorded in the first section.
