Vincent,

use this function:

function TellMeFirstCDRom : char;
var c1 : cardinal;
begin
  c1:=GetLogicalDrives;
  for result:='A' to 'Z' do
    if odd(c1 shr (ord(result)-ord('A'))) then begin
      if GetDriveType(PChar(result+':\'))=DRIVE_CDROM then
        exit;
  result:=#0;
end;

Regards, Madshi.
