/** Aquire a drive with known persistent address.This is the sysadmin friendly
/** Aquire a drive with known persistent address. This is the sysadmin friendly
way to open one drive and to leave all others untouched. It bundles
the following API calls to form a non-obtrusive way to use libburn:
burn_drive_add_whitelist() , burn_drive_scan() , burn_drive_grab()
You are *strongly urged* to use this call whenever you know the drive
address in advance.
If not, then you have to use directly above calls. In that case, you are
*strongly urged* to drop any unintended drive which will be exclusively
occupied and not closed by burn_drive_scan().
This can be done by shutting down the library including a call to
burn_finish(). You may later start a new libburn session and should then
use the function described here with an address obtained after
burn_drive_scan() via burn_drive_get_adr(&(drive_infos[driveno]), adr) .
burn_drive_scan() via burn_drive_d_get_adr(drive_infos[driveno].drive,adr).
Another way is to drop the unwanted drives by burn_drive_info_forget().
Other than with burn_drive_scan() it is allowed to call
burn_drive_scan_and_grab() without giving up any other scanned drives.
So this call can be used to hold aquired more than one drive at a time.
Operating on multiple drives:
Different than with burn_drive_scan() it is allowed to call
burn_drive_scan_and_grab() without giving up any other scanned drives. So
this call can be used to get a collection of more than one aquired drives.
The attempt to aquire the same drive twice will fail, though.
Pseudo-drives:
burn_drive_scan_and_grab() is able to aquire virtual drives which will
accept options much like a MMC burner drive. Many of those options will not
cause any effect, though. The address of a pseudo-drive begins with
prefix "stdio:" optionally followed by the path to an existing regular
file, or to a not yet existing file, or to an existing block device.
Example: "stdio:/tmp/pseudo_drive"
If the path is empty then the resulting pseudo-drive is a null-drive.
A null-drive will pretend to have loaded no media and support no writing.
A pseudo-drive with a non-empty path is called a stdio-drive.
It will perform all its eventual data transfer activities on a file
via standard i/o functions open(2), lseek(2), read(2), write(2), close(2).
Its capabilities resemble DVD-RAM but the media profile reported is 0xffff,
it can simulate writing and it issues no realistic write space information.
If the path does not exist in the filesystem yet, it is attempted to create
it as a regular file as soon as write operations are started.
One may distinguish pseudo-drives from MMC drives by call
burn_drive_get_drive_role().

actual availability of this feature.
If the media is suitable, the drive will perform burn_write_disc() as a
simulation instead of effective write operations. This means that the
media content and burn_disc_get_status() stay unchanged.

lseeked, and closed, but not written. So there are effects on it.
