Manipulate and collect info from CD/DVD devices

ODMan (Optical Device Manipulator) is a free (under the GPL license) application written in C for the GNU/Linux operating system. It uses specific commands known as IOCTLs to control, manipulate, enable or disable optical disk drive (like CD/DVD-ROM) capabilities. You can also hard reset or get the identify information directly from the drive controller.
