Re: Help CD Lock

The ioctl to do this is CDROM_LOCKDOOR.
Here is sample code:
int fd = open ("/dev/cdrom", O_RDONLY);
ioctl (fd, CDROM_LOCKDOOR, 1);
Change the third argument to ioctl() to 0 to unlock.
How linux implements this is a different matter. Look in
drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c for implementation details.
