I would like to make a small program to eject a cd and load a cd, but I cannot find the right command using MM32.
It seems to have every other command except that one.
How can I accomplish this?
Code please...

This will work for you, I have the API followed by the code:

Windows API-

Declare Function mcisendstring Lib "MMSystem" (ByVal lpstrCommand As String, ByVal lpstrReturnString As String, ByVal wReturnLength As Integer, ByVal hCallback As Integer) As Long

'     'to close it:
retvalue = mcisendstring("set CDAudio door closed", returnstring, 127, 0)
'     'to open it
retvalue = mcisendstring("set CDAudio door open", returnstring, 127, 0)
