Hello,

Is there a way to find out whether there is a DVD, VCD or audio CD in the CD drive by using delphi 5.0?

Thank you for your help.

For audio CD:

function IsAudioCD(CDDrive : Char) : boolean;

var
  VolumeName, DrivePath : string;
  MaximumComponentLength, FileSystemFlags : DWORD;

begin
  DrivePath := CDDrive + ':\';
  Result := FALSE;

  if (GetDriveType(PChar(DrivePath)) = DRIVE_CDROM) then
    begin
      SetLength(VolumeName, 64);
      GetVolumeInformation(PChar(DrivePath), PChar(VolumeName), Length(VolumeName), nil, MaximumComponentLength,
                                          FileSystemFlags, nil, 0);

      if (lStrCmp(PChar(VolumeName),'Audio CD') = 0) then Result := TRUE;
    end;
end;

The VCD format requires specific folders and files and the DAT. So search if exist these folders and the DAT.

the DVD cd's has a "Video_ts" and an "Audio_ts" folder in the root, so you can just search if these folders exists

KFZ, we have here at Ex-Ex a golden 'rule' :) We don't put a directly answer, just comments . How you can see I answer to 2/3 from the question and I put just comments(your answer solve just 1/3).
This way let the asker to choice the better solution for him.

Ginsonic right about this. But I can not reject KFZ's answer, because he gave a valid answer too. Btw, since KFZ's is a new expert, I think I will give the point to him as a welcome.

Again thank you for your help.
