How detects if the CD-ROM drive closes? How notify my app to check out again the disk in drive? Nero does this...

I wrote a program who shows to the user how kind of media is inserted in the CD-ROM drive. The program check out the drive to get this information wheh it starts. But if the user open the CD-ROM drive and change the media, that information became incorrect. So, the program needs a notify when the CD-ROM closes, an open, if possible. The Nero does this, so I think this is possible.
