MCI and volume control

I'm trying to set the volume on my CD drive while playing RedBook audio. Anyone know of a way to do this using mciSendCommand()? Thanks

You need to use the auxSetVolume function to accomplish it. The auxGetNumDevs function retrieves the number of auxiliary output devices present in the system. The auxGetDevCaps function tells you if it is a CD audio device and if it supports volume control.

Tried the functions you mentioned, I queried for devices, found a CD drive and tested for volume adjust capability as well as for LR volume adjust capability. My drive failed both tests. In Windows there is a system CD player. Inside this player, you can both adjust the volume as well as pan cd audio. They're doing it, but I can't. Are there any other functions that you know of that could be used for my purpose?

The most efficient way is to use Audio Mixer Functions (mixer*) to control the MIXERCONTROL_CONTROLTYPE_VOLUME mixer control of the MIXERLINE_COMPONENTTYPE_SRC_COMPACTDISC mixer line. These functions are not so easy to use. You need some time to delve into it. There is a Multimedia Sample "Mixapp: Sample Mixer Application" that comes with the Windows Platform SDK (Win32 SDK).

Good Luck!
