I have some basic winaspi routines for ripping audio from mmc compliant cd-rom drives. However, instead of further developing it, I wondered if it would be easier simply to thunk mscdex calls since then I could easily support all cd-rom drives (not just mmc ones). Plus using mscdex, I'm able to coorelate the drive letter (winaspi... no hope for such). I found the following links to MS knowledgebase which discusses this:
The above 2 links talk about reading cd-rom sectors under win95 and NT. However, I found the following info that talks about some problem reading red book audio sectors under win95 using mscdex Read Long:
However, should I be concerened with the above since the win95 example (1st link in my quest) does not use Read Long (1510h), it uses Absolute Read (1508h)?
I guess my question is: Can I rip audio data from audio cd's by thunking mscdex calls under win95/98/2000?
