Does anybody know how to put an icon on your desktop to eject the cd-rom drive? I have a multimedia keyboard with eject buttons but they don't work correctly.

It should be possible to find the run command for 'eject' when you right click on the CD drive in My Computer, but this will take a bit of finding. In the meantime there is a program called open-cd.exe which can be downloaded and an icon made to that.
You can get it from this Spanish language site:


If you click on Descarga a package apli.zip will download, in it is open-cd.exe, also a joke virus program, maybe best to delete all except open-cd.

I know it is possible to open the CD-ROM drive with a line of code. I saw someone with it the other day.

There were a few emails going around a while back saying 'click here to get a free drink holder from Microsoft', sure enough click there and your CD-ROM drive opens.
