Patent Number: 8,819,091

Title: Information processing apparatus, information processing system, information recording medium, information processing method, and program

Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a communicating section that executes communication with a server, a local storage section that stores subsequent data acquired from the server, and a data processing section that executes an acquisition process of the subsequent data, and a data playback process using data stored on a disc and the subsequent data stored on the local storage section. The data processing section builds a virtual file system for reading data stored on the disc and the local storage section, at the time of the data playback process, and performs the acquisition process of the subsequent data by transmitting a package ID to the server at the time of the acquisition process of the subsequent data, the package ID being information specifying a package corresponding to a file set necessary for building or updating the virtual file system.
