    Well, hdparm does work for CD drives (hdparm -E), but not for CD/DVD
    combo drives...

    And also, the tools I was thinking of isn't called setspeed...it's called
    setcd, and it uses ioctl(fd, CDROM_SELECT_SPEED, speed) which doesn't
    work on DVD players apparently. The same goes for the other tools I've
    tested ("hdparm -E" and "eject -x").

    Which also uses the above mentioned ioctl...
