Is there a way to find the cd rom drive letter that is in use and place it in a variable? Anyone have any ideas?

Download '' from jboy's link in #10 here. Running it returns the cdrom drive letter. For example, you'd run findcd -a>findcd.txt to copy the drive letter to a 'findcd.txt' file.

Double click on My Computer.
You should open a file which
lists all available dives.
Right clicking on any drive
will give you more detailed info
about the drive size.
Left clicking will give you
a list of all files on that drive.

You can also check to see what
is in the Control Panel settings.

Most CD drives will open
automatically when a CD is
inserted. If it doesn't,
doing a search for the
suspected drive letter,
usually E or F,
will produce a list of
all files on the CD,
any of which can be opened.
