//Open or Close CD Drive
//cDrive is Drive Letter to Open, or 0x01 for 'Default' drive
//Examples:
//CD_OpenCloseDrive(TRUE, 'G');  //Open CD Door for Drive G:
//CD_OpenCloseDrive(FALSE, 'G'); //Close CD Door for Drive G:
//CD_OpenCloseDrive(TRUE, 1);    //Open First Logical CD Door
void CD_OpenCloseDrive(BOOL bOpenDrive, TCHAR cDrive)
{
MCI_OPEN_PARMS op;
MCI_STATUS_PARMS st;
DWORD flags;

TCHAR szDriveName[4];
strcpy(szDriveName, "X:");

::ZeroMemory(&op, sizeof(MCI_OPEN_PARMS));
op.lpstrDeviceType = (LPCSTR) MCI_DEVTYPE_CD_AUDIO;

if(cDrive > 1)
{
 szDriveName[0] = cDrive;
 op.lpstrElementName = szDriveName;
 flags = MCI_OPEN_TYPE
       | MCI_OPEN_TYPE_ID
       | MCI_OPEN_ELEMENT
       | MCI_OPEN_SHAREABLE;
}
else flags = MCI_OPEN_TYPE
           | MCI_OPEN_TYPE_ID
           | MCI_OPEN_SHAREABLE;

if (!mciSendCommand(0,MCI_OPEN,flags,(unsigned long)&op))

 if(bOpenDrive)
  mciSendCommand(op.wDeviceID,MCI_SET,MCI_SET_DOOR_OPEN,0);
 else
