CD Rom Drives Auto Close

by colindarby / April 11, 2006 12:20 PM PDT

The XP Hone [OEM] I am running does not automatically close the CD Rom Door on computer "Close Down" = A little worried in case someone leaves one of the doors open and they get broken?

Have one CD Rom drive and one DVD Rom drive

Had a fairly good browse within the XP [OEM] Help and also on the Internet for help on the above,

I found a few programs [some Free] to use but seems to only have ones available that would function which you have to purchase

Is there somewhere where within the XP [OEM] programming I can use to customise same?

This is a feature of the drive in most cases.

The OS does not have a setting in this case.

"Drive has only simple annoyances:
Hold the button to eject, nice if you have kids. Tray doesn't auto close upon restart, "

From a drive review site.

Yup, those are nice little addons to the OS to fill in what they forgot.

I must have some thousand emails this month. Did I miss one?
