ISF Newbie (1/5)

  1. Here is the solution, available throughout the Web. Put this in a file, call it "eject.vbs: Set oWMP = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX.7") Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count-1 colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject next oWMP.close Invoke it from the command line. C:> eject.vbs
  2. Pity... I created a batch job to backup my data. The entire sequence runs automatically with no human intervention other than loading blank DVDs and one click to start. It invokes ImgBurn repeatedly to create ISOs and burn them. To do an interactive backup of a complex set of data would be tedious, repetitive and time-wasting. Sometimes batch is better than interactive.
  3. There is no /LOAD in the documentation. Besides, newer CD/DVD drives are unable to load or close the drive. They discontinued that capability to cut down the cost.
  4. What is the quickest way to eject a DVD, if that's the only thing you want to do? I don't want to use the "/EJECT YES" option when burning, because the batch job needs to perform another operation after the burn, and the DVD must stay in the drive. I have tried "/MODE READ /EJECT YES", but it takes forever to read a 4GB disc. Ditto VERIFY. "/MODE PICKER" opens up a dialog and stops the job.
