how to determine if a cd/dvd drive is writeable (hopefully in the registry
Posted on 2006-07-21
I have a program currently in winbatch may become vb6. I get a list is cd or dvd drives by letter but need a way to determine if they are writable ie burners.
i am currently using the key currentuser\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explorer\ cd burning..
if the type is a 1 or 2 its writable and 3 is not. but that key is often wrong and there is even a microsoft article on it.
so any other registry key that might tell me if its reallly a recorder??
