ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT structure

The ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT structure is used in conjunction with an IOCTL_ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT request to instruct the port driver to send an embedded ATA command to the target device.

Syntax


typedef struct _ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT {
  USHORT Length;
  USHORT AtaFlags;
  UCHAR  PathId;
  UCHAR  TargetId;
  UCHAR  Lun;
  UCHAR  ReservedAsUchar;
  ULONG  DataTransferLength;
  ULONG  TimeOutValue;
  ULONG  ReservedAsUlong;
  PVOID  DataBuffer;
  UCHAR  PreviousTaskFile[8];
  UCHAR  CurrentTaskFile[8];
} ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT, *PATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT;

Members

Length

Specifies the length in bytes of the ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT structure.

AtaFlags

Indicates the direction of data transfer and specifies the kind of operation to be performed. The value of this member must be some combination of the flags in the following table.

ATA flagsMeaning

ATA_FLAGS_DRDY_REQUIRED

Wait for DRDY status from the device before sending the command to the device.

ATA_FLAGS_DATA_IN

Read data from the device.

ATA_FLAGS_DATA_OUT

Write data to the device.

ATA_FLAGS_48BIT_COMMAND

The ATA command to be sent uses the 48-bit logical block address (LBA) feature set. When this flag is set, the contents of the PreviousTaskFile member in the ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT structure should be valid.

ATA_FLAGS_USE_DMA

Set the transfer mode to DMA.

ATA_FLAGS_NO_MULTIPLE

Read single sector only.

 

PathId

Contains an integer that indicates the IDE port or bus for the request. This value is set by the port driver.

TargetId

Contains an integer that indicates the target device on the bus. This value is set by the port driver.

Lun

Indicates the logical unit number of the device. This value is set by the port driver.

ReservedAsUchar

Reserved for future use.

DataTransferLength

Indicates the size, in bytes, of the data buffer. If an underrun occurs, the miniport driver must update this member to the number of bytes actually transferred.

TimeOutValue

Indicates the number of seconds that are allowed for the request to execute before the OS-specific port driver determines that the request has timed out.

ReservedAsUlong

Reserved for future use.

DataBuffer

Pointer to the data buffer.

PreviousTaskFile

Specifies the contents of the input task file register prior to the current pass-through command. This member is not used when the ATA_FLAGS_48BIT_COMMAND flag is not set.

CurrentTaskFile

Specifies the content of the task file register on both input and output. On input, the array values in CurrentTaskFile map to the input registers in the following manner.

ByteInput Register

1

Sector Count Register

2

Sector Number Register

3

Cylinder Low Register

4

Cylinder High Register

5

Device/Head Register

6

Command Register

7

Reserved

 

When IOCTL_ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT completes, the port driver updates CurrentTaskFile with the values that are present in the device's output registers at the completion of the embedded command. The array values in CurrentTaskFile correspond to the following task file output registers.

ByteOutput Register

Error Register

Sector Count Register

3

Cylinder Low Register

7

Remarks

The ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT structure is used with IOCTL_ATA_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT. With this request, the system locks down the buffer in user memory and the device accesses this memory directly. For a double-buffered equivalent of this device control request, see IOCTL_ATA_PASS_THROUGH and ATA_PASS_THROUGH_EX.
