Thanks for your answer.
I installed the wmi module and use the following code to generate
>>> import wmi
>>> c = wmi.WMI()
>>> cds = c.CDROMDrive()
[<wmi._wmi_object instance at 0x00EDC508>]
I have only one CD-RW drive with an empty CD-R disc inserted. It is
expected that the capability "4" (write access) should be in
cds.Capabilities. However it isn't there.
