I had forgotten dvd+rw-mediainfo when diggin into a Pioneer pancakes burner to know what his problem comes from (it was the dust).
So we can have lots of information in seconds on the drive
but also on the optical mediums
displays most if not all informations on the drive capabilities. Also `more /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info` gives a nice summary of that.
to know on the medium's content, especially audio CDs. But it's a bit short for DVD.
to print all the speed capabilities of the optical disc
wodim -atip dev=/dev/sr0
displays the medium's driver flags and supported modes (ex TAO, PACKET, SAO, RAW...)
to get the medium type; speed the burn was made; session status; tracks' number, size and length; if is bootable. Note: supports Blu-ray medias
(untested by me).
gives lots of informations about
- Medium: type (ex optical_dvd_plus_rw) ; blank? ; filesystem (ex : iso9660 Joliet) ; date and time was burnt ; block size (ex : 2048) ; session status ; label ; Tracks' number and type (ex audio)
- Drive: medias type compatibility, Vendor, model and revision (aka firmware), interface
/lib(64)/udev/cdrom_id -d /dev/sr0
also gives some information:
Optical medium's type (ex media_cd_rom); Session's status.
