VB - Opening a CD_R!!! tary

Anybody know how to open a CD-R drive
in VB.

It's easy enough to open up a CD-ROM drive (mciSendString function sends a command string to an MCI device)

Can you access the CD-R this way?
Or is this not an MCI Device...

I'm assuming you tried this and it didn't work.. The mciSendString functions work on my CDR. This may be a driver problem... What kind of hardware do you have, and do you have the latest driver available from the manufacturer?


Cheers!

I agree with mcrider.  I have a cdr and it works fine.  It is most likely a driver as mcrider has stated.  You might need to reinstall the driver.
