"DVD" gives a hint of the age of the drive. Everything from this century
should be driven by SCSI commands (volumes SPC, SBC, MMC).

There must have been old days when cdrecord needed special "drivers"
for particular CD burners (see man cdrecord, option driver=) and libcdio
was founded to unify the access to CD reader models on GNU/Linux.

Jörg Schilling had pretty much everything related to CDROM and DVD drives sorted out .. twenty years ago. Be sure to get the correct
sources from :


    see schily-2018-08-07.tar.bz2

That contains a massive pileof golden bits and tools and even XPG4 ported sources taken from the old OpenSolaris project.
