I'm looking for help on reading/writing SCSI devices (CDROMs, in particular) using C.  Are there any good libraries, documentations, etc. out there for this sort of programming?

I have an Adaptec SCSI controller (built into the MB -- an Asus P2B-S -- AIC-7890?) and MSVC++ 5.0 running on Win95B.

Specifically, I'm interesting in the ability to read raw data from my SCSI CDROM (whether data or audio) with the ability to set it to read from a certain location every time (so the same CD with the same start-read location should give the same bit/byte sequence read every time).

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Hmm, ok.  That's not viable for me at the moment.  Is there some sort of generic API I can use, or one that I can get for free?
