Add "Close Tray" to right-click menu on CD-drive


Recommended Posts

GreenMachine, as soon as I read your reply I installed CloneCD and sure enough,

it was there again. :rolleyes:

But where does the program make this change?

Since there is a way to add Services to the right-click of My Computer shouldn't it be

somewhat the same?

I'm going to have to search deep within the registry. Wish me luck. :)

Are you out of the registry yet?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\CloneCD. It adds a .dll file (ElbyVCDShell.dll) that handles both displaying the option (Close Tray), and performing the action. More than just a registry setting. You could perhaps get away with one DLL and a couple of registry settings, but if you go this far, might as well install the whole thing, no? I install it, and would even consider doing it for that option alone.

I did a goole search and found a program called CD Ejector. It's a small program residing in the system tray allowing you to open and close the CD tray. It doesn't do what your discussing but in the hands of a professional it may be altered to accomplish your needs.
