    atapi control of DVD

    Hi
    I am trying to write a program to verify a cd and dvd's as readable. This program will use ATAPI via the IDE IO calls (no os involved). I am interested in finding documentation on using a DVD drive via this interface. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I would try the web site of the manufacturer of the drive.

    I have tried the manufacturer's web site and the BIOS web site. I have called the drive Tech support. I also picked up a book "SCSI BUS & IDE Interface", however I have not found a good explanation of the generic protocols for use with DVD-CD drives. Hoping for other suggestions, but thanks for your suggestion.
