SkizoWalker,

In order to open and close the cd drawer...

Step 1:
add include of "mmsystem.h"

Step 2:
add import library
winmm.lib

Step 3:
add following code

MCI_OPEN_PARMS OpenParms;
OpenParms.lpstrDeviceType = (LPCSTR) MCI_DEVTYPE_CD_AUDIO;
OpenParms.wDeviceID = 0;

// open device
if (!mciSendCommand (NULL, MCI_OPEN, MCI_WAIT |
 MCI_OPEN_TYPE | MCI_OPEN_TYPE_ID | MCI_OPEN_SHAREABLE,
 (DWORD)(LPVOID) &OpenParms))
{
 // open drawer
 mciSendCommand (OpenParms.wDeviceID,
  MCI_SET, MCI_SET_DOOR_OPEN, NULL);

 AfxMessageBox(_T("Press OK to close the CD drawer"));

 // close drawer
 mciSendCommand (OpenParms.wDeviceID,
  MCI_SET, MCI_SET_DOOR_CLOSED, NULL);

 // close device
 mciSendCommand (OpenParms.wDeviceID,
  MCI_CLOSE, MCI_WAIT, NULL);
}

I don't know, however, how to detect when the cd drawer has been opened manually.
