I remember reading (while I was still picking a CD-ROM drive to buy)
that the NEC has Special (tm) commands/ioctls for reading audio
CDs. This means that it is not fully SCSI-2 compliant. I nuked the
mail I had saved about this when I bought a Toshiba XM3401, but seem
to remember that people have gotten it to play audio CDs, but with
more work. There is a (beta) xcdplayer on tsx-11 in linux/BETA/cdrom/,
but I have not run this program so cannot vouch for it. If you can get
sources for these changes, you could probably patch workman yourself.
Hope this helps,
