DRTrackCreate

Creates a new track object.

extern DRTrackRef DRTrackCreate(
   CFDictionaryRef properties,
   DRTrackCallbackProc callback) AVAILABLE_MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_2_AND_LATER;
Parameters
properties

A CFDictionary object containing the track properties. If this parameter is not a valid CFDictionary object the behavior is undefined.

callback

A pointer to a DRTrackCallbackProc callback. If this callback is NULL the behavior is undefined.

Return Value

A reference to the new DRTrack object.

Availability

Declared In
DRCoreTrack.h

DRTrackEstimateLength

Asks the track producer for a block size estimate.

extern UInt64 DRTrackEstimateLength(
   DRTrackRef track) AVAILABLE_MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_3_AND_LATER;
Parameters
track

The track to query.

Return Value

The size of the track in blocks.

Discussion

This function calls the track producer to ask it to estimate the block size needed for its data. This call is passed through to the DRTrackCallbackProc track production callback as kDRTrackMessageEstimateLength .

For some types of tracks, this call may be very expensive. For example, a file system track (DRFilesystemTrack ) may need to iterate through folders on disk to provide an accurate estimate. If a large number of files and folders are involved, this call may take 30 seconds or more. Since your main thread should not block for this long, you may wish to call this function on a separate thread.

The return value is the size in blocks that is specified in the track's properties dictionary.

DRTrackSpeedTest

Tests the speed at which data can be produced.

extern float DRTrackSpeedTest(
   DRTrackRef track,
   UInt32 howManyMilliseconds,
   UInt32 howManyBytes) AVAILABLE_MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_2_AND_LATER;
Parameters
track

The track to test.

howManyMilliseconds

The maximum duration for the test production cycle. The test may not run for the full requested duration if the byte limit is reached first. If this parameter is 0, the result is undefined.

howManyBytes

The maximum number of bytes of data the client should produce before completing the test. The test may not produce the requested number of bytes if the time limit is reached first. If this parameter is 0, the result is undefined.

Return Value

The maximum throughput obtained during the test cycle.

Discussion

Runs a test track-production cycle, calling the produceData callback for the specified number of milliseconds or until the specified number of bytes have been produced, whichever comes first.

Use this function to verify that the produceData callback can produce data fast enough to satisfy the data throughput requirements of the burn.

This function will automatically set a value for the kDRMaxBurnSpeedKey key in the track's properties dictionary, with a value equal to the return result.

Callbacks

See the Overview for header-level documentation.

DRTrackCallbackProc

Callback defined in the client to produce track data for recording.

typedef OSStatus ( *DRTrackCallbackProc)(
   DRTrackRef track,
   DRTrackMessage message,
   void *ioParam);

Parameters
track

The track with this callback is associated.

message

Indicates the type of data requested as one of the constants in the Track Messages enumeration.

ioParam

Parameters are message-specific.

Return Value

Error code. Your client application should return a value of kDRFunctionNotSupportedErr when a message is received that you don't respond to, and a value of noErr when the message is handled successfully. Any other error will cause the burn to immediately fail with the value you return as the error code.

Discussion

If your callback does not support a given function, it should return a value of kDRFunctionNotSupportedErr .

Constants
kDRAudioFourChannelKey

Optional key. For CD-DA audio tracks only. This track property key corresponds to a CFBoolean value indicating whether the track data has four channels, as opposed to the two channels of normal stereo. If this key is not present, the engine will use a default value of false and standard two-channel stereo is assumed.

Four-channel audio is supported in the Red Book standard but never caught on. It is probably being replaced by SACD, so you probably shouldn't attempt to use it.

On the disc, this key corresponds to bit 3 of the control field in sub-channel Q.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRAudioPreEmphasisKey

Optional key. For CD-DA audio tracks only. This track property key corresponds to a CFBoolean value indicating whether the track includes pre-emphasis of 50/15 microseconds. If this key is not present, the engine will use a default value of false. On the disc, this key corresponds to bit 0 of the control field in sub-channel Q.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRBlockSizeKey

Required key. This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the size of each block of the track. Common values are defined in the Block Sizes enumeration.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRBlockTypeKey

Required key. This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the type of each block of the track. Common values are defined in the Block Types enumeration.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRBufferZone1DataKey

Optional key. This track property key corresponds to a CFData object containing the data to write to Buffer Zone 1 on drives which support it, such as the Pioneer DVR-S201. This data will be sent directly to the drive. If this key is not present, no Buffer Zone 1 data will be sent.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRBurnKey

This key corresponds to the DRBurn object for which the PreBurn message applies.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRDataFormKey

Required key. This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the data format of each block of the track. Common values are defined in the Data Forms enumeration.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRDVDCopyrightInfoKey

Optional key. This track property key corresponds to a CFData object containing Multi-Media Command (MMC) copyright data. This data will be sent directly to the drive. If this key is not present, no copyright information will be sent.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRDVDTimestampKey

Optional key. This track property key corresponds to a CFData object containing Multi-Media Command (MMC) timestamp data. This data will be sent directly to the drive. If this key is not present, no timestamp will be sent.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRFreeBlocksKey

This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the length, in blocks, which is still available in a writable track.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRIndexPointsKey

Optional key. For CD tracks only. This track property key corresponds to a CFArray object containing CFNumber objects describing index points within the track. Each index point is specified as a number of blocks, equivalent to frames, relative to the start of the track. There are 75 blocks in one second of CD audio. No more than 98 index points may be specified for a track.

Not all drives can write index points, and not all consumer CD players report or use them. If this key is present in any track and the drive cannot write index points, the burn will fail with a return value of kDRDeviceCantWriteIndexPointsErr .

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRMaxBurnSpeedKey

Optional key. This track property key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the maximum sustained rate at which your application will request data from the track callback, in units of kilobytes per second where 1 kilobyte = 1,000 bytes.

The value for kDRMaxBurnSpeedKey must be greater than the drive's minimum burn speed. It is usually safe to specify the appropriate flavor of 1x (kDRDeviceBurnSpeedCD1x or kDRDeviceBurnSpeedDVD1x ), but some drives cannot slow all the way down to 1x.

Given the capabilities of the drive, the bus, and the recordable disc, the burn speed used when writing a layout will generally be the highest data rate possible that is less than or equal to the value of kDRMaxBurnSpeedKey for every track, as well as less than or equal to the value of the kDRBurnRequestedSpeedKey key for the burn object.

When this key is not present, the requested maximum sustained data rate defaults to a value of infinity. In this case, the Disc Recording engine assumes that your track callback can produce data at any rate requested.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRNextWritableAddressKey

This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the Logical Block Address (LBA) of the next writable address in the track. This key is not present in closed tracks.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRPreGapIsRequiredKey

Optional key. This track property key corresponds to a CFBoolean object indicating whether the pregap listed for the track is required. If this key is not present, the track will behave as though the key were false.

If this key's value is set to true and the device does not support the exact pregap length, the burn will fail with a return value of kDRDevicePregapLengthNotAvailableErr.

If this key's value is set to false and the device does not support the suggested pregap length, the engine will choose an alternate pregap length.

Available in OS X v10.4 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRPreGapLengthKey

Optional key. This track property key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the length in blocks of empty space, or pregap, to be recorded before the track. If this key is not present the Disc Recording engine will assume a 2 second, or 150 block, pregap.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSCMSCopyrightFree

One value for the kDRSerialCopyManagementStateKey dictionary key. This value indicates that the track has no copying restrictions. Copies of this track should also be copyright free.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSCMSCopyrightProtectedCopy

One value for the kDRSerialCopyManagementStateKey dictionary key. This value indicates that the track is a first-generation copy of an original that was subject to copy protection. No further digital copying should be allowed.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSCMSCopyrightProtectedOriginal

One value for the kDRSerialCopyManagementStateKey dictionary key. This value indicates that the track is an original subject to copyright protection. Digital copying of this track should be allowed, but copies should be marked with appropriate Serial Copy Management System (SCMS) data.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSerialCopyManagementStateKey

Optional key. For CD tracks only. This track property key corresponds to a CFString value indicating the Serial Copy Management System (SCMS) state of the track. If this key is not present, no SCMS data is written.

Not all drives are capable of writing SCMS data. If this key is present in any track and the drive cannot write SCMS, the burn will fail with a return value of kDRDeviceCantWriteSCMSErr .

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSessionFormatKey

Required key. This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the session format of the track. Common values are defined in the Session Mode enumeration.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSessionNumberKey

This key corresponds to a CFNumber object containing the physical session number of a track.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSubchannelDataFormKey

The property whose value is the data mode of the subchannel data sent to the drive. If this key is not present, the track will default to a value of DRSubchannelDataFormNone and no subchannel information will be requested from the producer.

Subchannel data is returned from the producer in the same production method that produces normal user data. Normally a producer returns user data in chunks of DRBlockSizeKey size. When subchannel data is also produced, the producer is expected to return user data of DRBlockSizeKey in length with an additonal 96 bytes of subchannel data. Depending on the data form specified in this key, the format of this 96 bytes is either in raw or pack format. When subchannel data is requested from the producer, the DRFlagSubchannelDataRequested flag is set in the flags parameter of producePreGapForTrack:intoBuffer:length:atAddress:blockSize:ioFlags: or produceDataForTrack:intoBuffer:length:atAddress:blockSize:ioFlags: and blockSize is increased by 96 bytes.

Available in OS X v10.5 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSubchannelDataFormNone

A value for DRSubchannelDataFormKey indicating that the subchannel data will not be provided by the producer.

Available in OS X v10.5 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSubchannelDataFormPack

A value for DRSubchannelDataFormKey indicating that the producer will be asked to provide pack format subchannel data for the track. If this form is selected, the drive will perform P and Q parity calculations on each pack and interleave the packs before writing them to disc. This corresponds to a subchannel data form of 0xC0.

Available in OS X v10.5 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRSubchannelDataFormRaw

A value for DRSubchannelDataFormKey indicating that the producer will be asked to provide raw format subchannel data for the track. If this form is selected, the producer must have performed P and Q parity calculations for each pack and done proper interleaving of the subchannel data. The drive will fill in the P-Q subchannel information and write the R-W subchannel data as is to the disc. This corresponds to a subchannel data form of 0x40.

Available in OS X v10.5 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackIsEmptyKey

This key corresponds to a CFBoolean object and indicates whether the track is empty.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

   kDRFlagSubchannelDataRequested = (
   1 << 1),
   #endif
   kDRFlagNoMoreData = (
   1 << 0)
};
Constants
kDRFlagNoMoreData

Indicates the end of variable length data.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRFlagSubchannelDataRequested

Indicates that the blockSize passed in includes room for subchannel data. Data producers should check this flag and perform subchannel data production in addition to user data production. Each block requested from the producer in this case will be formatted as

[user data (as specified in track properties)][subchannel data(96 bytes)].

For example an audio producer callback should produce 2352 bytes of audio data into bytes 0-2351 of the block and an additional 96 bytes of subchannel data into bytes 2352-2447.

Available in OS X v10.5 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

   kDRTrackMessageVerifyPreGap = 'vrpr' /* added in 10.4 */
};
Constants
kDRTrackMessagePreBurn

Message sent to the track production callback indicating a burn is about to begin. Clients should open any files needed to produce data and get ready to start sending data.

The ioParam parameter contains a CFDictionary object with information about the burn. It currently holds kDRBurnKey and kDRDeviceMediaInfoKey dictionary keys, but may be extended to hold other properties in the future.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageProduceData

Message sent to the track production callback requesting that the client produce the next chunk of data for the track.

The ioParam parameter is a pointer to a DRTrackProductionInfo structure.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageVerificationStarting

Message sent to the callback proc indicating that verification is about to begin.

ioParam is not used and is NULL.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageVerifyData

Message sent to the track production callback when the client has chosen the kDRVerificationTypeReceiveData option.

The ioParam parameter is a pointer to a DRTrackProductionInfo structure describing the data passed to the callback.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageVerificationDone

Message sent to the track production callback when verification is complete.

The ioParam parameter is not used and is NULL.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessagePostBurn

Message sent to the track production callback indicating a burn has completed.

The ioParam parameter is not used and is NULL.

Available in OS X v10.2 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageEstimateLength

Message sent to the track production callback asking it to estimate the length of the track. This message is sent outside of a burn cycle, when the DRTrackEstimateLength function is called.

The ioParam parameter is a pointer to a UInt64 value, which the callback fills in with an estimated number of blocks for the track. The estimate should be reasonably accurate and no smaller than the actual size that will be needed.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageProducePreGap

Message sent to the track production callback requesting that the client produce the next chunk of the pregap.

The ioParam parameter is a pointer to a DRTrackProductionInfo structure.

Available in OS X v10.3 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.

kDRTrackMessageVerifyPreGap

Message sent to the track production callback when the client has chosen the kDRVerificationTypeReceiveData option. The data produced by the client for the kDRTrackMessageProducePreGap should be verified.

The ioParam parameter is a pointer to a DRTrackProductionInfo structure describing the data passed to the callback.

Available in OS X v10.4 and later.

Declared in DRCoreTrack.h.
