The current CD/DVD access in ADFS uses PIO modee and blocking I/O. This mean the CPU is heavily involved in transferring data from the CD/DVD drive, and that RISC OS cannot do anything else whilst waiting for data to arrive from the drive. This project will look at implementing DMA access to the drive, and providing a non-blocking interface to ADFS which Cino, and other applications and parts of RISC OS, could then use to speed up their own transfers and use less CPU in the process.
