ABOUT FDCDTEST
==============



PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
-------------------

The CD-ROM test utility was designed to test the integrity of the Future 
Domain CD-ROM Device Driver and CD-ROM drives.  Users and Developers will 
now be able to test all the functions supported by the CD-ROM Driver for 
problems related to the CD-ROM Driver or the CD-ROM drive itself.

This utility is also used in the Future Domain Quality Assurance Test 
Procedure for each drive supported by the Future Domain CD-ROM Driver.  
This is performed to ensure that every available function is operational 
for use with the CD-ROM applications on the market as well as future CD-ROM 
applications.  FDCD test is written to the Microsoft CD-ROM Extensions.  
For a complete description of all the functions supported by the Microsoft 
CD-ROM Extensions, you may contact Microsoft Corporation for a copy.



TO START FDCDTEST
-----------------

To run the FDCDTEST program change directory to where the FDCDTEST.COM file 
is and at the DOS prompt type the following:
        
        fdcdtest <Enter>
   
The program locates all CD-ROM drives within the system attached to the 
Future Domain SCSI Controller(s) and prompts for a drive selection.
You need to select a CD-ROM drive to test.

The Main menu is then displayed.

FDCDTEST will abort if the following conditions occur:

  The CD-ROM Extensions are not installed.
  No CD-ROM drives found attached to the Future Domain SCSI Controller.

There are three Function Menus available. These are:

   Main Menu
   IOCTL Input Menu
   IOCTL Output Menu

To minimize the screen output, the menus are displayed only once.  You may 
press the ? key to re-display a menu.



FUNCTION MENUS
--------------

currently using the CD-ROM Device Driver.

4 - DEVICE CLOSE

Used by the Device Driver to determine the number of callers that are 
currently using the CD-ROM Device Driver.

5 - READ LONG

A SCSI Read command is issued to the CD-ROM drive with the option of 
specifying the Addressing Mode and the Data Read Mode.

    Addressing        0 - High Sierra Mode
    Modes:
                      1 - Red Book mode

    Date Read         0 - Cooked mode : usually the
    Modes:                default mode for EDC/ECC
                          checking which returns a block
                          size of 2048 bytes.
                      1 - Raw mode - for no EDC/ECC
                          checking, this option returns all
                          2352 bytes which includes the
                          EDC/ECC data.

6 - READ LONG PREFETCH

                         the end of the disc or just the specified
                         track.

9 - STOP AUDIO

This function is used to pause or stop a CD-ROM drive while in Play mode.  
Selecting this option once will put the drive in Pause mode and selecting 
this option twice consecutively will put the drive in the Stop mode.

This function is used to restart Play mode on a CD-ROM drive currently in 
Pause mode.  A "General Failure" error status will occur if the drive is 
in Stop mode.

B - DISPLAY DEVICE STATUS

The Device status is a 2-byte value which is returned by the device driver 
to indicate the command request has successfully been completed.  This 
function displays Bit 8 and 9 of this status which corresponds to the Done 
and Busy bit.


IOCTL Input Menu
----------------

The IOCTL Input menu is displayed by selecting option 0 from the Main menu.  
Press the <Enter> key to return to the Main menu.  The following section 
describes the options available from the IOCTL Input menu.

0 - RETURN DRIVER ADDRESS

A 4-byte address is displayed indicating where in the system memory the 
CD-ROM driver is located.

Displays the current location of th drive head in High Sierra and Red Book 
format.

2 - AUDIO CHANNEL INFO

Use to display the current Audio Channel control settings. These settings 
may be changed using the Audio Channel Control IOCTL Output function.

There are a total of 4 input and output channels that may be supported by 
a CD-ROM drive.  Valid channels are 0 to 3 which represent the following:

   Channel 0:            Front left
   Channel 1:            Front right
   Channel 2:            Rear left
   Channel 3:            Rear right
   Input Channel:        This is the actual channel that is read
                         from an Audio track on a disc.
   Output Channel:       This is the channel that comes from
                         the drive's amplifier to power the
                         speakers.
   Volume Control:       A value from 0 to 255 indicating the
                         volume setting on the specified
                         channel.  A volume control of 0
                         indicates Mute mode and a volume
                         control of 255 indicats Full volume.

3 - DEVICE STATUS

The device status is maintained by the CD-ROM driver to provide a general 
description of the options currently set and available on the CD-ROM drive. 
The device status is maDe up of 32 bits which are defined as follows:

The driver will return a cooked sector size of 2048 bytes and a raw sector 
size of 2352.

5 - RETURN VOLUME SIZE

This function returns the lead-out track which corresponds to the total 
number of blocks on the disc.  The displayed address is in High Sierra 
format.

6 - MEDIA CHANGED

This function is used to determine the current media state of the drive.  
The returned values are defined as follows:

Use this option to get the UPC/EAN (Universal Product Code) from the disc.  
Most discs do not contain this code and will cause the driver to return a 
"Sector not Found" message.  Also, if the CD-ROM drive does not support 
this function, an "Unknown Command" message will be returned by the driver.

B - AUDIO STATUS INFO

After selecting an audio track to play, this function will display the 
starting and ending addresses specified by the play request. Will also 
display the Pause status of drive.


IOCTL Output Menu

This function will lock the door on a CD-ROM drive.

2 - UNLOCK DOOR

This function will cause the drive to unkock the door if previously locked.

3 - RESET DRIVE

Use this function to reset and reinitialize the drive.

4 - AUDIO CHANNEL CONTROL

This function displays the current Audio Channel control settings and 
prompts for an Input and Output channel and a Volume control setting for 
the specified channel.  See "IOCTL Input Audio Channel Info" option for 
additional information.

5 - CLOSE TRAY

This function will close the tray on a CD-ROM drive that employs a tray 
mechanism.



ERROR MESSAGES
--------------

The CD-ROM driver returns a Status code for every command request that is 
completed.  This code is used to indicate whether the command request was 
completed successfully or if an error occurred.  In the event of an error, 
the driver will set the Error bit (bit-15) in the status code and will 
place the error code in bits 0-7.

If an error occurs when using this utility, the program will automatically 
convert the error code to one of the following error messages.

Error Code:   Error Messages:

  0           Write protect violation
  1           Unknown unit
  2           Drive not ready
  3           Unknown command
  4           CRC error
  5           Bad drive request structure length
  6           Seek error
  7           Unknown media
