    Abstract: In summary, when new optical record media types become available in the market that are not supported by the optical drive 530 a user has, in addition to upgrading the existing optical drive to be able to read/write these new optical record media types, the host application that is being used to read/write optical record media will have to be updated. This problem is solved by providing a method to operate the optical drive 530 in an emulation mode for emulating different optical record media types. The emulation feature allows using the existing application that can handle an old optical record media type to be used on new optical record media. Additionally, the emulation feature allows designing host applications for newer type of optical record media that become available by using the existing old optical record media types.
