If you are planning to do it with a web page, you better re-think it.  the only way to upload from a web page is with a form and each individual file has to be selected by the user.

you could use activex and FSO and scripting objects to figure out the files given the directory and the CD drive
but it has the problem that you will get the ActiveX warning unless the user sets the security setting accordingly

You may be better off using FTP.  You could redirect them to an FTP folder and let them know they should drag and drop from their folder to the browsers FTP folder.

Our security consultants tell us that corporate web sites that are blocking activeX  has risen from 12% in January to 35% in August.  The number of security breaches involving activeX have reached the point that you can no longer trust it.  

My company does not even allow activex on new internal apps.  It is total banned because it is too great a security risk.

is FTP port being blocked in your company website too? If not, I suggest you use / develop a small FTP program and put it in your website so that your user can download and install it if they want upload the images.

To upload 100 of images will take up some time depending on your connection speed. I'm sure no user will want to wait that long. Your FTP program can do it in background.

Most modern web browsers support FTP.  Drag and drop or copy and paste from a local file browser (Windows Explorer in Windows) to your web browser is enough as long as the FTP folder has the right permissions.

consider FLASH and the fscommand

   please see the following technical document, http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/fscommand_projectors.htm

this will detail how you can use FLASH to acomplish what you would like to do in a secure enviroment.

This may be used online on a webpage, or as an EXE file, that installs on the client machine, passwords may be set
to secure the application in its operating enviroment additional security features limit the ability of website thieves to copy
the website content.

dij8 IMHO.  FTP is probably the best solution.
