I received one response that basically said OPC is performed automatically
by the drive and unless in real-time condition, " you need not use Send OPC
command at all".

Are the device company people on this reflector able to answer's David F.'s
question? I believe we would then need to provide additional text below
table 597 - Features Associated with the SEND OPC INFORMATION Command, or
speak about its usage in the model section, so that the host developers are
no further wondering.
Best regards,
David Burg.

What's the official word on the Send OPC command?
Does the host simply do these steps:
1) Read Disc Information Block,
2) Check either (Disc Information Length>32) or (Number of OPC Tables>0)
3) If #2 true then issue a Send OPC with DoOpt=1
