I’ve got a few questions regarding the CD reading/writing via ASPI, hope you’ll enlighten me
- I’ve been using SFF-8020i as an ATAPI CD-ROM instructions reference for some time now, but this document is a little bit dated (it originates back in 1996) and of course doesn’t contain any cd writing instructions - that is why I’m looking for some other resource. I suspect such command set is located somewhere on http://www.t13.org or http://www.t10.org but unfortunately there are so many other standards on these sites, that I was unable to find what I was looking for. Most importantly, I’d like to know how to perform a block write - a counterpart of READ instructions.
- A few years ago Adaptec released an ASPI SDK for free. Later the SDK disappeared from the site only to be replaced after some time with a driver pack containing parts of the SDK. So the SDK remains free and you can use it in your projects - provided you have it Do you know of any place where I could get the SDK? Or maybe some of you still have it in your archives? In addition if you know of any other ASPI drivers which are distributed as a statically linked library (lib, not dll) I’d appreciate some names and links.
- I’d like to play a little bit with TOC, but unfortunately the information about it is so scarce that I’m not even sure where TOC is located. I’ve read somewhere that TOC has it’s copy 13 seconds or so from the lead-in of the CD, which is later copied to it’s real location. Still, no idea how to read or write it. I guess Clone can alter the TOC, but I haven’t managed to change much when tinkering with ccd file - the file format has no documentation, so it’s hard to do anything advanced with it.
