HUH? Are you trying to exchange files with your friend? If so, what does the cd drive have to do with it? Looks like you need to link with your friend. If you need a shortcut to your cd drive: start>my computer>right click your drive and select "create shortcut". That will give you a desktop shortcut. From there you can add files to a cd, or create files from a cd that is not write protected. If you can tell us what you want to send or receive it would help a lot.

From what I understand he only wants a shortcut when clicked will open or close the CD drive. The only problem is I've never known of such a way of doing that without the usage of software, I'm thinking it would also mean an ASPI driver/layer would have to be pre-installed. I don't know if it could be done with a JavaScript file (.js) or Visual Basic file (.vbs).

ummmm. a .vbs is a VBScript file not a VB file.

 

and it is possible if there is a COM object that can let you open/close a CD Drive

Years ago, there was a e-mail prank going around that had an attachment. When you opened the attachment, you got a window that said you would get a free beverage holder and had a "OK" button. When you clicked the OK button, your CD tray would open. A rumor got started that it had a trojan hidden in it and people stopped sending it. You can download it here and scan the crap outta it just to be sure it's clean. Cokegift.exe
