Two questions regarding DVD drive utilities
« on: December 25, 2007, 02:52:42 AM »
Merry X'mas Everyone!  8)

Two quick questions reg. DVD drives:

1. Is there any command or utility to close (pull in the tray of) a DVD drive?

2. Is there a utility that'll let me see a DVD LED, like there are for HDDs?
 
Nosh.

1. NirCmd

2. Never heard of any, but it must be a feature of some sophisticated system activity monitor.

Nosh - do you mean an onscreen widget of some sort?  If so, I'll keep an eye out for some & report back if I come across any.

Yep, a tiny always on top LED is what I had in mind.

Thanks Jim.
