CDR/RW drive, open/close

  anniesboy68 16:41 09 Apr 2003

Here's an interesting one. On my keyboard I have a button which instructs my CD ROM drive to open/close. Does anyone have the knowlege as to what the command is to open/close the CDR/RW dive so that I can program a spare button to do that?. Or where I can find it?

PCA did offer a little program called 'open sesame' which gave you a shortcut to open/close your default cd drive(will only control 1 drive).found on cover disc last year.

i looked in download section of PCA the other day for 'open sesame' but couldn't find it,may be out there somewhere.

i have copied the shortcut for both my CD drives from 'my computer' and put them down on the taskbar.they give the option to eject from a right-click.(you'll have to close them manually)not quite what you're after though.
