The Storage Device Driver Reference provides a simplified programming interface to expedite the development of DASD, SCSI, and CD-ROM device driver support for the IBM OS/2 product.

Frequently, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) develop device support to drive only their own unique device interfaces and the support may be hardware-dependent. The programming interfaces described in this reference categorize the DASD, SCSI, and CD-ROM device-driver modules as hardware-dependent or hardware-independent. Hardware-independent modules can be linked dynamically with hardware-dependent modules for a given workstation configuration.
