See the documentation page:
Platform SDK - Windows Base Services - Hardware - Device Input and Output - Using Devic Input and Output Control - Calling DeviceIOControl on Windows 95
There is an example that might help you.

Dear davmarc,
If I had SDK (or DDK?) documentation... I have seen Microsoft and Borland Help for DeviceIOControl recently but example doesn't explain what I need. In DOS IOCTL pointer to data is passing via DX:DS registers. Corresponding flat regs struct doesn't include these. Probably one should pass data via EDS:ESI? Or No?
Frankly I meant that anybody did these thing recently and didn't yet forget the exact receipt.  

Thanks anyway.
