Hello!
Well, my problem is the following:
I need to know something about the CD that is in my CD Writer drive:

I need to know if the CD in there is CDR or CDRW (Or just to know if the CD is erasable)

How to do this in Delphi?
Thank you!

Hi Bruno,

the only way to get this information is by using SCSI/ASPI programming.
Sorry, don't have any examples...

You can get some similar info using a ready made freeware component.. although it may not be exactly what you want...

Take a look at : http://www.torry.net/cd.htm and scroll down to TCDEvents.

On that same page you can find a number of other bits to help you especially the ASPI library for Delphi.. you might wanna take a look at that and see if you can figure out how to use it.
