What I want to know is, if I were writing a volume management system, and I wanted to make sure it didn't interfere with a write in progress, is there any way for it to find out if a disk is being written without disturbing a write in progress?NO
Joerg is correct, but it's certainly possible to see if a resource is in use, easily in the kernel and usefully in user space. However, I think the desirable thing is for the burning software to protect its resource rather than depend on other software to be curner aware.
