NAME

      atapicam - CAM XPT (transport) module for ATAPI devices
 

SYNOPSIS

      device atapicam
 

DESCRIPTION

      The ATAPI/CAM module allows ATAPI devices (CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD drives,
      floppy drives such as Iomega Zip, tape drives) to be accessed through the
cam(4).
 
scbus(4) must be configured in the kernel as well.  The SCSI
st(4)) can then be used to access the
pass(4), can also be used to
      send SCSI commands directly to the devices through the CAM API.
 
      A separate CAM bus is created for each ATA bus in the system.  On each of
      these buses, target ID 0 is assigned to the master device, and ID 1 is
      assigned to the slave (provided they are ATAPI devices).
      Some SCSI commands are intercepted by the driver, and undergo special
      processing in order to work around limitations of ATAPI devices.  Such
      limitations can be consequences of the ATAPI specification.  For example,
      ATAPI devices do not implement the 6-byte versions of MODE_SELECT,
      MODE_SENSE, READ, or WRITE.  They can also be common bugs, such as hang‐
      ing when queried for extended INQUIRY information.
 

EXAMPLES

            device ata
            device atapicam
            device scbus
            device cd
            device pass
 
      Add the atapicam driver to the kernel.
 
            camcontrol devlist
 
      Print the list of all devices available through CAM.
 
            mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0 /mnt
 
      Mount a CD-ROM from an ATAPI CD-ROM drive (the command above assumes that
      the ATAPI drive is the only CD-ROM unit).

HISTORY

      The ATAPI/CAM driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.8 and FreeBSD 5.0.
 

AUTHORS

      The ATAPI/CAM driver was written by Thomas Quinot 〈thomas@FreeBSD.org〉.
afd(4))
      can be configured in the same kernel.  Simultaneous access to the same
      device through the SCSI generic drivers and the ATAPI-specific drivers
      may cause problems and is strongly discouraged.
