I am new to linux world and facing some issues using SUse Enterprize 32 bit OS. I am looking for commands in linux which can give the media type of the CDrom drive. For instance if I have CD/DVD in the drive , I would like to know if it has No/Wrong Media, cd r/cd rw, Blank Cd etc.
I tried using :
cdrecord -prcap dev=/dev/cdrom 2>/dev/null | grep 'Current:'
from the link:
But it just gives reand and write speeds for Cd and DVD.
Also , to let you know, I am using

Please let me know if it is possible to get the current mediatype details . Thanks in advance for all the suggestions.
