I have 2 CD-ROM players. How can I assign a mediaplayer to one or the other without defaulting to the 1st one. If this isn't possible how can I do it with lower level commands?

All I want to do with the mediaplayer is play a couple of CD tracks... any example code would be greatly appreciated.

hehe, I want to let you know of this ... Seen my small freeware component cdevents on the internet? (Torries). Can be handy for you. Just want to let you know of it. Let me know what you think of it. Zif.

Hi davegreen, well it's that easy, but I think it's nowhere written down and I must admit I once searched it for a long time too. But when you know it, it's that easy, yes. It's just a small component I wrote once and it's mainly made for detecting a remove or insert of a cd while user pushes on the eject button of the CD-tray. It's called CDEvents.zip and you can find the last version at torry's delphi pages. I can send it also to it. Look out: I just wanted to let you know of it since you are working with cd's and maybe you can give me some new ideas or even bugs. Zif.

Thanks Zif.. you saved me a lot of searching for the answer.
Please send me the component when you have time.. my email is dave@horusdevelopment.com.
As a related question, have you any idea of the quickest way to just play one cd track and to stop the mediaplayer from playing the next track automatically?

Thanks again for your help.
