Disabling CD Tray Eject in Win 2000
Posted on 2003-10-30
First off, this is my first post, sorry if it isn't in the most appropriate category...
We are currently building a rack mount PC system (Windows 2000 SP.4) that has a requirement for daily backups of log files to CD-R. Nero 6 / BackItUp has been purchased and seems to do the job well.
The problem is that after burning a backup the CD tray is automatically ejected. The software itself doesn't have an option to disable this (at least not that I can find).
This causes me two problems:
1) The CD tray cannot physically open in the case - there is a door in the way!
2) The system may be unattended for days so the CD must remain closed to allow it to burn each day's backup.
Can I somehow disable the CD's ability to be ejected by software, only allowing eject on pressing the eject button on the drive?
Failing that, what alternatives are open to me - software etc?
Thanks for your anticipated help...
