Mounting & detecting DVD ROM
Hi, my boss wanted my application to be able to check whether the DVD ROM drive of the machine is faulty or not. So the user has to only click a button in the GUI, and if there's a DVD inside the drive and the it can read the disk, it will return a success value. Likewise, if it can't read the disk (ie. cannot mount disk, the drive's head is faulty, etc), it will return a failure value.
The questions is:
1. How do I mount from inside the application? Do I have to call:
2. After the drive is successfully mounted, and then what? I don't have any clue as to what to do to check whether it can read any file on the disk. Or maybe I just call the "opendir()" function to see if it returned the directory pointer of the mounted DVD. But if a directory is successfully opened in the application, does that mean the drive itself is not faulty?
Thanks in advance.
