Allright, fellas, mciSendString() works for CD drive, but does not for DVD drive. I tried
lnRet = SendStr("Set VideoDisk Door Open Wait", 0, 0, 0)

and
lnRet = SendStr("Set DigitalVideo Door Open Wait", 0, 0, 0)

ain't workin' with the error code 263.

Out of desperation, I even tried "AVIVideo" as a device name - ain't wanna work either, error code 274.

Any other ideas?

And, fergossake, could anybody tell me where I am to look up these error codes and see what they mean?!

Regards,

Ilya
