Obtainining info on the optical drive in a CentOS Linux system

If you need to determine the manufacturer, type, or model of optical disc drive that is in a CentOS Linux system, you can log into the root account and use the dmesg command and pipe the output into the egrep command looking for key terms, such as "cdrom", "dvd", "cr/rw", or "writer" as shown below:

# dmesg | egrep -i 'cdrom|dvd|cd/rw|writer'
