then use the other letter! (haha)

sorry, I think I misunderstood what you were trying to do - I thought you wanted to set a variable to a known value, not dynamically set it.

Hi Mario_castro,
Don't know if you can use VBscript in your case but anyway. Following script will assign CDDRIVE variable first CD-Drive's letter.

'----start setcdvar.vbs----
Set FileSystemObject = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set Drives = FileSystemObject.Drives
For Each DiskDrive in Drives
    DriveLetter = DiskDrive.DriveLetter
    If DiskDrive.DriveType = 4 Then
        Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
        WSHShell.Environment.Item("CDDRIVE") = Driveletter & ":\"
        Exit For
    End If
Next
Set Drives = Nothing
Set FileSystemObject = Nothing

'Optional - result output.
WScript.Echo "CDDRIVE = " & WSHShell.Environment.Item("CDDRIVE")

Set WSHShell = Nothing
'----end setcdvar.vbs----

hth,
