I'm making a program for a cd, and want to be able to play audio tracks from it.  How do I gain control of playing these from inside my program?

Hi Franker,

use the component TMediaPlayer from the system palette of Delphi.

I'm sorry, I guess I didn't explain this enough.  I have two problems right now...the more important one of that I need to be able to know where I am in the track.  I'm making a slideshow program with music, and cannot figure out how to decode the TimeFormat so I know where I am in the track so I can display the right images.  The second is that I have 2 cd roms, and I'd rather let TMediaPlayer use my other one.

Hi Franker,

1. Look at this source : http://www.torry.ru/samples/samples/abcdplay.zip (I believe it will give you the information you need, if not just ask!)
2. Use Mediaplayer1.FileName := 'F:'; with F: your second drive letter.

If you still got problems, just ask.
