I have posted the final revision of a new command for SMC-3, REPORT VOLUME
INFORMATION, as accepted by the SMC-3 working group yesterday during a
telephone conference.
This command allows an application client to query detailed information about
the volume in an element by element address and also introduces a variable
length CDB that allows sending a volume "handle" such as a serial number or
barcode to request information.
If you have interesting in reading volume information from media changers or
processing variable length CDBs you might want to take a look at this
