Re: Howto Detect DVD-Drive?
CD drive detection sample is half-useful. Of course, one can enumerate all CD/DVD drives, but the problem is how to get their capabilities. SCSI_PASSRTROUGH (used in the sample) in Win2K+ only works for admin login and should not be considered for mass software for that reason.

I think you are wrong! See documentation of IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/storage/hh/storage/k307_3ce0bb34-5f8d-40f8-ae98-24f597656ad0.xml.asp Quote: Applications do not require administrative privileges to send a pass-through request to a device, but they must have read-write access to the device.
