    I might need to take code from that program I posted and code my own program to do this.

    I'm not sure if windows would recognize it as a drive, considering all the major components (reader and ****) arent there.

    I might need to code it to send the command to the specific device, and not the drive letter itself

    or no?

    Yeah!
    I'm going to use that!
    So i can use my remote to open/close it!
    So when i wan'to pimp, i don't need to shut down the whole system!
    I'll leave the board of the cd-rom in the computer, so i don't have to **** out-of-range-IDE-cables, and just bring the 5 wire's of the motor/switches tot the dash!
    I'm going to use a DVD-rom here.
    HAHA Cd-rom is for pussy's!

    (Correction: i only have a broken DVD-rom at here...)

    hey, its an old cdrom from a gateway 2000 that I was taking apart (time to do some ******* cleaning around here, and take out the trash )

    Says it was manufactured in 1993

    Oh, and its not really a CD-ROM anymore, I've taken all the components that actually spin/read the disc out, so now its just a motorized tray

    Without the ide cable, the drive will not be recoginized by the OS. I'm not sure what would be required to have the OS assign a drive letter to the CD player. I would take a guess and say that it reads some firmware off of the drive and then makes sure that it has drivers installed for it and then goes from there. I know that dealing with HDD, the Firmware and Serial # are read from the disk platter itself. As for a CD drive, since there is no platter, I would assume the Firmware and Serial # are stored on one of the circuit boards. I would just give it a go and plug the drive up to your computer to see if it is recoginized. Then play with it from there. If you can't get it to recoginize the drive, then the next step I would take would be to figure out how to send a Line High through your serial or parallel port.

    as far as i can see- no one has mentioned this. There is a pain in the *** thingy in there that usually 'locks' the cd drive in.

    Are you leaveing this in? it happens when the drive is almost completly retracted.

    Didn't think of that one!

    But when using IDE it's not a problem at all.
    When using just the 'machinery' i think it's pulled back when a current apears on the open/close line's.
    If not, an other line is used for this.
    One of the 5 wires.
    Can not be on the board (in the IDE) , becouse that's not part of the 'machinery'.
    And if it's cousing trouble, we could always remove it...
    Don't think it's going to be a problem...
