CM206 programming question?

Post by Michael Thero » Sun, 15 Jan 1995 07:54:04


     I am currently working on a device driver for the Philips CM206
double-speed drive.  I am wondering if anyone else is out there working
on a driver, in particular, succesfully read from a data CD and got
meaningful information from it.  I have a command that you can send to the
drive and make it read, however everything else is guess-work.  I've gotten
the drive to successfully perform all other necessary functions ( and a few
unnecessary ones ).  If anyone has started writing a driver, please e-mail


P.S. For others who are interested in assisting in assisting in the
creation of this driver, a Majordomo will be online shortly.  I will
announce it here when it is up.

: Yes! Excellent work Mike.


: I am sure that a lot of Philips CM206 owners like me will stand in line to
: kiss your feet should you succeed.

Uhhhh... Sure, and there will be a new syndrome out there called athlete's

: Keep us posted!

Sure thing, if any overly ambitious programmers can figure out how to read
from the cm206 drive reliably it would be great...

1. Phillips CM206 Driver (programming)

     I'm an amateur programmer and I would be interested in attempting to
create a CDROM driver for the Phillips DoubleSpeed 206.  No such driver
exists at this time, and I know many Linux enthusiasts (myself included) would
be interested in having one.  Does anyone know where I can retrieve a doc file
on how to program this drive?  Thanks in advance.
