does anyone know how to set the media speed (1x, 2x, 6,7x) for
TOSHIBA XM-3701 cdrom drive ? I'd like to have some ioctl() or similar
where I can redure the speed to 2x or 1x when I get read/positioning errors
for flaky CDR disks.

did anyone already implement this ?
or where can I get the information how to change the speed
(which SCSI mode page and bytes/bits) ?



All SCSI disks will from now on                     ___       _____
