I need to know how to create a batch file to make my computers CD-ROM drive at school open and close continuously when you log into the computer. Does anyone have any ideas, maybe some help?

Ah, that reminds me of the good ole days. Some of the high schools had terminals connected via modem--the old modems where you connected an actual phone to it--to the IBM mainframe at the board of eduation. We'd write our little BASIC programs on that yellow teletype paper. We had the ability to store a few programs under our user name. No thought was given to security. I don't think we had passwords. I guess it was inevitable that it would occur to someone to call up another's program and mess with it (the work 'hack' having not been invented yet or at least defined as a computer term.) It was nothing serious as we weren't devious people. I think the worst was inserting lines in their program to print particular error messages.

Well anyway, I think there's a command written by some malware author that opens and closes the cdrom tray. I don't know what it is but a google search might turn it up. Then I guess you could loop it in a batch file and install it in the start menu.

Of course, this thread won't last very long here before being pulled.

Oh you wacky kid. You should pull that stunt on Grandma also.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
