    A small app for rr to monitor cd drive and tell rr if it contains music

    Edit Update: Uploaded another zip. There are were still problems being reported eith the SysTray.ocx so I included a installer for the complete package to help simplify things.

    Edit Update: Uploaded a new zip file with the installer for the systray.ocx that the CD Drive Monitor program needs

    Hello all, I have created a small aplication that monitores the cd drive on your system and then sends any command you choose to RR when that drive contains music.

    I created this application so that if I put a music cd in my drive the skin would automatically switch to a cd player screen and using b8bboi's cfx bat files load that cd into the play list. It works very well. The zip file includes the binary and the source code.

    I would like to thank guino for the work on the rr sdk which got me pointed in the right direction and b8bboi for the use of his bat files.

    Well, I told guino if he wanted a copy just ask and he didn't ask. I don't want to bother him he is a busy man already.

    this is a cool idea. I love Road Runner but it needs some better support for the basics.

    For people that Watch DVD's and listen to CD's Road runner is a bit clunky. It would be nice to have better CD support. Its not crucial but it would be nice. I remember guino saying his plan was to write a CD playing and ripping plugin but he just hasent gotten around

    I do want a copy.. I just can't keep up with everything going on here.. I'm just not all seeing... post it on my ftp site (link on skins list thread) or email it to me (email is on my profile), and I'll put it up on RR's site for whoever wishes to use it. If you provide me the sources I might even make some improvements (if I see any needs for such).

    @guino the zip file at the top of the thread has the binary and source included but I will be shooting you am e-mail to make sure you get it.

    The code that monitors the drive is acctually very simple and one improvement I see already for v1.1 is the ability to search sub folders so you don't have to have at least one music file in the root directory.

    SysTray.ocx

    Sweet05,

    I'd love to try this out, sounds exactly what I have been looking for! However, I get an error saying I need SysTray.ocx, where can I get that? I downloaded one, but I think it's a different version to what you used.

    Keep up the good work!

    I just found an even easier way to make this work, without needing any extra software running. See my thread here:
    Here's an easy way to Autoplay Audio CDs, DVDs, & whatever in Road Runner!

    Thanks for the heads up on the ocx I am going to package it in the zip file right now. I am also using b8bboi's bat files. I edited mine a bit to allow me to load 2 or 3 cd's in a row with out loosing the saved playlist from the cd's saving over top of it.
