How can I eject and close cd-rom drive by one button , so if it is closed I eject, if it is opened I close it .
I know that for close :
mcisendmessage('set cdaudio door closed wait',nil,0,handle);
and for Eject is : mcisendmessage('set cdaudio door closed wait',nil,0,handle);
I would know how combine the two commands in one procedure for ejecting or closing cd-rom drive .

Hi,

I think zifnab is the expert here who knows a lot about it, but i haven't seen him here for a while. The code below comes from him.
 
unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs;

const
  DBT_DEVICEARRIVAL = 32772;
  DBT_DEVICEREMOVECOMPLETE = 32768;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure WndProc(var Msg: TMessage); override;
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.WndProc(var Msg: TMessage);
begin
if Msg.Msg = WM_DEVICECHANGE then begin
 case Msg.wParam of
  DBT_DEVICEARRIVAL : begin
    showmessage('CD DOOR OPEN');
   end;
  DBT_DEVICEREMOVECOMPLETE : begin
    showmessage('CD DOOR CLOSE');
   end;
 end;
end
  else inherited WndProc(MSg);
end;

end.

procedure CDOpenClose;
var
  MCIO: TMCI_Open_Parms;
  MCIS: TMCI_Status_Parms;
begin

  MCIO.lpstrDeviceType := PChar(MCI_DEVTYPE_CD_AUDIO);
  if mciSendCommand(0, MCI_OPEN, MCI_OPEN_TYPE or MCI_OPEN_TYPE_ID or
    MCI_OPEN_SHAREABLE, LongInt(@MCIO)) = 0 then
  begin
    MCIS.dwItem := MCI_STATUS_READY;
    mciSendCommand(MCIO.wDeviceID, MCI_STATUS, MCI_STATUS_ITEM or MCI_WAIT, LongInt(@MCIS));
    if MCIS.dwReturn <> 0 then mciSendCommand(MCIO.wDeviceID, MCI_SET, MCI_SET_DOOR_OPEN, 0)
    else
      mciSendCommand(MCIO.wDeviceID, MCI_SET, MCI_SET_DOOR_CLOSED, 0);
    mciSendCommand(MCIO.wDeviceID, MCI_CLOSE, MCI_WAIT, 0);
  end;
end;


Good luck!!
