It's as simple as below where you just specify the dev device of the CDROM which is usually /dev/sr0. You can boot actual bootable discs like Windows, Linux, etc straight from a physical drive this way.
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -cdrom /dev/sr0 -m 4096
I've never seen this before in all of my years. Ihave some very old CDs and DVDs 12-15 years old that seem not to work in this BD-R/DVD-R/CD-R Asus drive.
The discs are fine actually and ironically they even work fine on a normal LG USB based BD-R drive!
Here are the errors in Linux:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null creates ever increasing load every second.
After minutes the load has moved up to 4.79
I've tried with two different discs in my system.
I wonder if it's a delay or problem with the SATA bus because one drive I have connected has recently failed.
I notice when drives fail that you get some IO/blocking issue when they don't respond properly.
Yes I believe it was, because here's the same disc after removing the dead........
My Samsung drive failed on me, at first I thought it was the enclosure but a direct SATA connection causes the same problems for discs that are inserted. It will work fine for a few minutes but then starts spewing the errors below.
I've never been a fan of Korean made optical drives and have always had trouble with them. The problem is that I don't believe NEC and Lite-ON make drives anymore, and I considered them the leaders.

CDR Manufacturers - Why is so much media bad?I have searched for good media and tried many kinds for years. I guess I'll try to summarize my findings and conclusions.
Dye is irrelevant, dye of any color can be good or bad, it more likely depends on the manufacturer.
Speaking of manufacturers, the name at the top of the disc means nothing. For example, Memorex along with any other 'brand' is actually always made by another manufaturer including CMC Mag........
NEC ND-3500A is great!I just picked up an NEC 3500A a few weeks ago and I love it.
It is a great all in-one optical drive solution.
It can burn DVD/+R-R at up 16x, read at 16x and rewrite at 4x and CD-R at up to 48x!
Not bad, but the impotant part is that it delivers consistent high quality burns and the drive is as quiet as I could ask it to be.
It's also convenient that it has a lot of hacked firmware for overspeeding of........
