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.
